Poet: W. J. Slater
Lovingly, sorrowing, oft do we sigh,
When the shadows of life bring tears to the eye,
For one whose friendship, like Moses of old,
Was given in love, not bought with gold.
Singing and dying, without any care,
Friendship is like a bird in the air,
It flutters and flies, in summer it comes,
In winter is gone, leaves desolate homes.
Like the flower that blooms in early spring,
It fades away and leaves a sting
In the heart of one, who just then
Needs Friendship's hand, to help him win.
Like the shooting star at early morn,
As it flies through space, and is lost in gloom,
Friendship is offered where none need its hand,
Flies off at a tangent when its in demand.
Like the sun in the heavens its dazzling light
Is gone when the storm is at its height,
Friendship is found in days that are bright
But pales when clouded with want and blight.
Like the moon in its path through a starry sky,
It sinks away as morning draws nigh,
Friendship is found where plenty reigns
But lost when crossing poverty's plains.
But while at times the sun is dim,
The moon it pales, the stars not seen,
God willed it so, and He commands
That Friendship shall extend its hands.

Your friendship means so much,
And this I must explain.
You helped me through tough times,
And I hope I've done the same.
You are there when I call,
No matter what the reason.
If I need you, you'd be right over,
No matter what the season.
A true friend indeed you are,
Someone I can always trust.
You listen to my whine's,
And always have time to discuss.
I hope you can say the same,
That I've been a good friend to you.
One thing is for sure, my friend,
I'll always stay true to you.
A True Friend Is One ...

A true friend is one who cares
Friends like this are so rare
No matter what happens to you
They pick you up when you are blue.
A true friend is one who shares
No one else can compare
They are always willing, always there
They always give love and show care.
A true friend is one indeed
That want to see you succeed
They help you up when you are down
They make you laugh acting like a clown.
A true friend is one who acts
By their actions your life it does impact
You never find them overreact
They just stick to the facts.
A true friend lends a helping hand
They always listen and understand
Give thanks for your true friend
To them, appreciation do send!
