I found some poems and quotes about friendship that I wrote several years ago here on LJ...thought I'd repost:|
~ FRIENDS ~
As we walk our path of life,
We meet people everyday.
Most are simply met by chance.
But, some are sent our way.
These become special friends
Whose bond we can't explain;
The ones who understand us
And share our joy and pain.
Their love contains no boundaries.
So, even we are apart.
Their presence enhances us
With a warmth felt in the heart.
This love becomes a passageway,
When even the miles disappear.
And so, these friends, God sends our way,
Remain forever near.
FRIENDSHIP IS A PRICELESS GIFT
THAT CANNOT BE BOUGHT OR SOLD
BUT ITS VALUE IS FAR GREATER
THAN THE MOUNTAIN MADE OF GOLD
FOR GOLD IS COLD & LIFELESS
IT CAN NEITHER SEE NOR HEAR
& IN THE TIME OF TROUBLE
IT IS POWER LESS 2 CHEER--
IT HAS NO EARS 2 LISTEN
NOR HEART 2 UNDERSTAND
IT CANNOT BRING U CONFORT
OR REACH OUT A HELPING HAND
SO WHEN U ASK
GOD FOR A GIFT
BE THANKFUL IF HE SENDS
NOT DIAMONDS, PEARLS OR RICHES
BUT THE LOVE OF REAL TRUE FRIENDS
"If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I wouldn't jump with them, I would be at the bottom to catch them."
"Everyone hears what you say. Friends listen to what you say. Best friends listen to what you don't say."
"We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere."
"Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart."
"Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher."
Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it is a comfort to go hand in hand." ~Emily Kimbrough~
"People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." ~Elizabeth Kubler-Ross~
If you have one true friend, you have more than your share. ~Thomas Fuller~
“When it hurts to look back, and you're scared to look ahead, you can look beside you and your best friend will be there.”
"Together forever, never apart. Maybe in distance, but never in heart.”
"Promise you won't forget me, because if I thought you would, I'd never leave."
~Winnie the Pooh~
"A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out."
If all my friends were to jump off a bridge, I would not follow, I would be at the bottom to catch them when they fall.
"If I had one gift that I could give you, my friend, it would be the ability to see yourself as others see you, because only then would you know how extremely special you are."
"A true friend is someone who knows there's something wrong even when you have the biggest smile on your face."
