  4. A Treasure
    Poet: Unknown

    Friendship like yours
    Is something dear
    Something to treasure
    Year after year

    Worth more than money
    Sweeter than honey

  5. Blessed We Are
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

    What really can I say,
    About the two of us.
    One day were strangers,
    The next we were blessed.

    We've only been friends,
    For a very short time.
    But it's like we'd been friends,
    In some other lifetime.

    Right away we clicked,
    And best friends we quickly became.
    We had the same interests,
    Our husbands were also the same.

    How blessed could we be,
    To have found each other?
    I can tell you one thing,
    I wouldn't want any other.

  6. Friendship
    Poet: Lucy Barns

    What pleasures can friendship impart.
    What balm in its virtues we find,
    What transport it yields to the heart.
    What joy and content to the mind.

    The trav'ler fatigu'd and forlorn,
    Thro' deserts and wilds forc'd to stray,
    For friendship's endearments does mourn,
    To comfort his desolate way.

    When sickness and trouble appears.
    And grief like a shower descends,
    How soothing the pitying tears
    That flow from a loving kind friend.

    No mis'ry so sharp and severe,
    Bat friendship's sweet soothing can calm;
    Nor pleasure so great nor so rare,
    But friendship can heighten its charms.

  7. The Friend Who Just Stands
    Poet Unknown

    When trouble comes your soul to try,
    You love the friend who just "stands by."
    Perhaps there’s nothing he can do
    The thing is strictly up to you;
    For there are troubles all your own,
    And paths the soul must tread alone;
    Times when love cannot smooth the road
    Nor friendship lift the heavy load,

    But just to know you have a friend
    Who will "stand by" until the end,
    Whose sympathy through all endures,
    Whose warm handclasp is always yours
    It helps, someway, to pull you through,
    Although there’s nothing he can do.
    And so with fervent heart you cry,
    "God bless the friend who just 'stands by’!"

  8. Friends like you keep me from feeling blue.  You accept me, and always let me be me. Catherine Pulsifer

  9. Face Of A Friend
    Poet Unknown

    The face of a friend! How it shines in the darkness
    That often assails us! How preciously near
    It seems, when the trial of long, long denial
    Has made the sweet blessing unspeakably dear!

    The heart is consoled, and is lonely no longer,
    Its terrors and tremors are all at an end,
    And the way that was dreary becomes bright and cheery,
    Illumined at once by the face of a friend.

  10. Friends Like You
    Poet: Kate Summers

    With friends like you
    Who help in all I do
    I can feel only
    God's favor on me

    I have been blessed
    Because you are the best
    A friend indeed
    You always exceed!

    Blessings in my life are many
    Much to be thankful but if any
    You are at the top of my list
    I have to tell you, I can't resist.

  11. God Sends Us Blessings
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    God sends us blessings every day
    To help us as we travel life's highway.
    The many blessings in my life
    Cause me happiness not strife.

    One of the treasured blessings
    Is the people around us which create happy feelings
    And you, my friend truly are
    In my life a shining star.

    Friends are a blessing, that's so true
    What would my life be without you?
    Friends like you are far and few
    I thank God for the blessing of you

  12. Friends
    Poet: Edgar A. Guest

    Most every day
    I find my way
    Made smoother,
    Brighter, by a friend;
    Some kindly word
    My heart has stirred
    And caused my
    Spirits to ascend.

    A handclasp here,
    A smile sincere,
    A kindly deed
    In friendship done
    Have made me feel
    That life is real
    And I have gladly
    Journeyed on.

    Where'er I turn
    'Tis but to learn
    The sweetness of
    The heart of man,
    For everywhere
    Are friends, I swear,
    Who smooth my path
    Where'er they can.

    There is no day
    Howe'er so gray
    But what some friend
    With cheerful voice
    Is glad to share
    My bit of care
    And give me
    Reason to rejoice.

  13. Faithful Friend
    Poet: J. S. Ogilvie

    How sweet to have a faithful friend.
    In whom we can confide:
    To bless us if we act aright,
    And if we err to chide.
