FRIEND/ Celebration of Friendship

friends forever, our love was mutual
friendship knotted in a binding ritual
friends forever, nurturing it was a must
Ever feeding nutrients of care and trust

friends forever, we played innocent pranks together
Yet, no punishment could tear our friendship asunder

friends forever, misunderstandings scotched on the double
Corrosion and bitterness stamped out, preventing trouble

then we grew up and went our separate ways

Life in retrospection suddenly
recalled your wonderful friendship
Memories accusing my neglectful self
opening floodgates of what was once mine
Your pure love and kinship…
You did  not  judge  me

When I erred

You did not spurn me

When I erred

You did not forget me

When I erred

Instead

You gave me gifts of

Unconditional love

Joyous laughter

Patient listening

Forgiveness

Sympathetic understanding

And above all

Your wonderful friendship!!!

Friendship improves happiness, and abates misery,
by doubling our joys, and dividing our grief.
Author:   Joseph Addison 1672-1719, British Essayist, Poet, Statesman

A friend is someone who will help you move.
A real friend is someone who will help you move a body.
