(this one was written for my best friend on her 18th birthday...just thought I'd share it.   )

'Til the End
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Friends 'til the end--
that was the promise.

through good times
and bad
through happy
and sad...

through new friends
old friends
and some
in-between
friends...

through sleepovers
and prank calls
through envying
anyone tall...

through boyfriends
and breakups
through hangovers
with hiccups...

through parties
'til two
through grounding
with you...

through homework
and teachers
and games
in the bleachers...

through betrayal
and lies
through heartache
and good-byes...

through gazing at stars
and cruising in cars
we swore we would
go far...

through the past

through the present

through the future...

friends
'til the end.

One way you can save your riches,
And the other will save your soul.

Oh, I like this!!! If I'd know Rebecca years ago, we could say this was about us! Did your friend like this poem?

BobbyCat-
I've held hands with a friend, like
you mention, for all time.
Friends ... for the keeping.

THANK YOU to everyone for the great responses...I am so glad y'all liked it!  As a matter of fact, PdV, I wrote this out on parchment paper in calligraphy for my friend, then framed it and gave it to her....she still has it hanging on her wall. Friends 'til the end..........
