Friendship is the Gift

I have been reflecting today on the wonderful close friends I have in my life, some of them I have known for over 30 years of my life and others for about one year. Regardless of the length of time I have known them, each and everyone of them is very special to me, their support is second to none and just talking to them instantly uplifts my spirits to another dimension.  This poem is dedicated to my dearest friends, Donna, Sharon, Richard, Debbie and Dagmar, I shall champion you forever, thank you for all that you give me and much more. May I encourage you to let your friends know how truly special they are to you.

Friendship has true meaning, a simple gifted treasure,

When you’re feeling a little stuck, or need a partner for your leisure.

A real friend will be there, always just for you,

Holding your hand, to help you see tough times through.

An empathetic listening ear, gentle hug or warm smile,

A forever empowering note, that goes the extra mile.

Friendship is so sweet, like sugar in your tea,

Friends separate from the ‘I’ and turn it into ‘We’.

Friendship is the gift, of endearment and inner strength,

To support you indeed, friends will go to arms length.

Today I reflect on my friends, who are so very dear,

Like beautiful guardian angels, they bring me good cheer.

So wherever your dreams take you, please remember to tell,

Your friends that they are magical, like an enchanting wishing well.

Happy are their hearts, that shine upon you,

The closest of connections, without needing any glue.

Now we share the laughter, and hopes for all time,

I have friends in a million, I’d give them my last dime.

So often we forget ,the joy they bring each day,

Thank you my closest friends, in my heart for you I pray.
