A real friend is almost magical,
as though it were
written on the wind
before either of you were born.
It's as if you are related
somehow, somewhere,
not by genes, but by
something much stronger
connected to your
very souls.
A real friend knows the
way you think,
understands the way you feel,
and ~most~ important a real friend
shares your ~sense of humor~.
That kind of friendship
is something that anger, envy
and jealously cannot destroy, for
those feelings only bond two
real friends closer together.
A real friend has faith in you
and won't judge or ridicule you
as you struggle through
life's problems.
A real friend can make you laugh,
even when you feel like crying.
And most of all, a real friend
selflessly gives love and concern
even when you can't give
back a thing.

~A real friend is priceless~
so few and far between!

..without surrender, be on good terms with all persons..

Sunshine,
Now what is this Patricia stuff...
which is I admit much better than some things I've been called

Please call me Pat, and re: the first line, I do deeply believe God knows exactly what we each must have to make it through. Another one of those,
~blessed~, ~even if just once in a lifetime~ situations. I am truly happy you have more than a few. And, I really do appreciate your comments. They mean a lot.

Warmly,
Pat

"And most of all, a real friend

I am also blessed in having a few of these real friends you speak of.  Nicely said, Pat!

The stars will shine when I am gone,
the earth will turn on as before,
the gulls, still race along the shore,
the morning star, still kiss the dawn

Pat, I'm so glad that I went back tonight to see what poetry I missed over the weekend.  I'm finding some wonderful poetry back here. This is among the best. I really related to this, Pat, beause I have a lot of these real friends, also. I'm sure that you do, too. Thanks for sharing your heart, Pat.


With Love To All,
Ethel
