ABC'S OF POEMS & POETRY-

POETRY MONTH-APRIL



FRIENDS

As we walk our path of life,
We meet people everyday.
Most are simply met by chance.
But, some are sent our way.

These become special friends
Whose bond we can't explain;
The ones who understand us
And share our joy and pain.

Their love contains no boundaries.
So, even we are apart.
Their presence enhances us
With a warmth felt in the heart.

This love becomes a passageway,
When even the miles disappear.
And so, these friends, God sends our way,
Remain forever near.


"THE MEANING OF BEING SPECIAL"

The meaning of being special,
is found in a person like you.
A friend who is so thoughtful,
in everything they say and do.

A person who betters my life,
by being a part of it each day.
Someone who touches my heart,
in a special, and unique way.

A person who's always giving,
and willing to help all they can.
Who truly gives from their heart,
showing they care for who I am.

This friend I have found in you,
is as special as one could be.
And I am so blessed in my life,
that you've been a friend to me.


FRIENDS

You are special,
because you're someone's friend.
You've touched someone's life
in a unique way
like no one else could.
You've been there when
someone needed you,
when someone felt
sad and all alone.
You've given comfort.
You've made someone smile.
You've been there to celebrate
the good times,
and to lend an ear when
someone needed you to listen.
You are special,
because you're my friend,
and I appreciate everything
you've done for me.


Friendship Is...


Friendship is about...
bringing out the
positive when everything
seems negative...
being accepted
for who you are...
being able to
pick up right where
you left off...
sharing, talking,
and laughing...
Friendship is about us,
and for that I'm grateful.
