All over the world
our friends are laughing or crying
from the time they are born
to the time they are dying
Each one of them is needed
and with our hearts we share
our tears and our laughter
our souls we lay bare
We hold out our hands
in our desire to show love
our hearts talking gently
defined in every hug
We share and we smile
use our words with great care
because at the end of the day
good friends are so rare!
I wanted to add something to this, and so I do...friendship doesn't mean living in someone's pocket but being there when you're needed...I have many friends that I only talk to on a haphazzard basis but they do know, that whatever their troubles..I will, I will be there and I am, just like those that understand what I just said...this, along with The Orphanage are extremely special to me, both were written some time ago and exist in older forums...some friendships appear to have lapsed but only on paper, not in mind or deed..after all, isn't friendship about being there, contributing and sharing?

true friendship is truly very precious...and rare
If all was light...then I would have never learnt the dark...from which such truth evolves
from which evolves the light...
