Your friendship means the world to me
So important I hope you see
Without you there to lean on
All my hopes would be gone

I know that you are always there
With compassion beyond compare
Willing to listen to my fears
Offering comfort for my tears

With your written or spoken sentiment
Encouragement and support is sent
Straight to my heart it goes
Helping me see the highs, not just the lows

A kind word or understanding look
Is all it really took
For me to know that you cared
More than most others dared

Now there is a bond between us
A special rare kind of trust
Friends for life through good and bad
When we are happy or are sad

Me for you and you for me
That is how it will always be
Our paths have crossed for a reason
Together they'll stay through all seasons



 Friends are friend forever if the Lord's the Lord of them and a friend will not say never cause the welcome will not end.

Friendship ... nothing like it !
It's all about giving ...
and sometimes we are just lucky enough
to get it back.  Ahhhhhh !

A wonderful testament to your friend.

this is a perfect tribute to both your friend and to your kind soul... friendship like this is special and the best thing is it inspires us to write.
very nice work, thank you for the consistantly kind words to my work, I appreciate it much.
take care, jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

This was a wonderful tribute to your friend Lone, You write with such feeling...any person would be lucky to have you for a friend

Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.

Panthers...thank you, I consider myself very fortunate indeed.

Sven...yes it is.  They are put in our lives for a reason.

Marge...I have been blessed beyond belief with one of those rare gems...a friend for life.

JM...Just love your work first of all!!!  You too seem to write from the heart.  She inspired me to write this poem which I posted with her blessing.  It is a special bond we share that is strong enough to face anything.  Thank you for the touching comment.  

Romantic Heart...thank you, very kind words.  She is a wonderful person.  Without her in my life at this time, I do not know where I would be.  

BG...yes, she is aware of my feelings and they are reciprocated a thousandfold.  We are truly blessed.
