Friends are for keeps

even when one weeps

Smiles and tears are shared

for this is why they were paired


close together or far apart

they are always in each others heart

sharing stories, recipes and pranks

this is friendship, that you gives you such thanks


Like a tree’s canopy spreading in its growth

friendship expands and strengthens for both

little bumps in the road can be shared

smoother when you know your friend cared


grumbling about the weather

jousting with a feather

dancers on a show

uhm.. stars you know


offering tips

helping with blips

learning and nourishing

the friendship flourishing


but when the bump in the road

a mountain becomes

friends gather

to tear it down


to be leaned upon

to cry with

to laff with

to fight together


To share strength

to listen

and to hug

but mostly to be a friend.


because close or far

here or there

with a friend

you are never alone

    I hope some of my friends turn out to be true ones. I need them now, but I’m afraid they will get tired of me now that I’m not the always-smiling, always-happy girl I was. What’s that stanza that goes “Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone”? I hope the poet, whoever it was, is wrong.

  2. This is really sweet and exactly what true friendship feels like ❤
