This reminds me of what I see here at Passions!

We are friends, and because of this I care.
I feel your hurts, your worries and your joys,
I see your tears, your smiles and outstretched hand,
I hear your cries, your giggles and your tone of voice.

We are friends, and because of this I care.
I want to help whenever you are blue,
I want to be there for you whenever you feel down,
I also want to share your triumphs with you.

We are friends, and because of this I care.
I feel so sure that God above has made us so ,
I feel His love surround our friendship,
I feel that He,who loves us all, will help our friendship grow.

Lovely poem and sweet meaning.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

A very nice tribute to Friends, I like that
and so true

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Hi Jo,

This must be a wonderful place!  I realized on second read that your first stanza was felt and heard in the heart.

GrandmaJo -

It is a friendly place.
Loving, caring friends .....

I like our expressions of friendship.
We all bask in the glow.
