FRIENDS

We must share ourselves
because our hearts
are
so big and strong.

You tell me
who you are
and
I tell you
who I am.

There have been
moments
in our lives
when we were
so full of joy
we felt
we would burst
unless
we shared it
with another.

There have been
moments
in our lives
when we ached
longing for
someone
to listen
and understand.

Joys are doubled
when shared
with a friend.

Then two hearts are happy
two people
laugh and sing.

Pain is lessened
when shared
with a friend
who cushions the blow.

A friend is for sharing.

In a friendship
there is
the magical warmth
of the human heart
that surpasses
the power of medicine.

  3. "Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
    Some people move our souls to dance.
    They awaken us to new understanding with
    the passing whisper of their wisdom.

    Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
    They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our
    hearts, and we are never ever the same."

    ~ Flavia Weedn

    "Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame
    by another human being.
    Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have
    rekindled this light."

    ~ Albert Schweitzer

    There is nought better to be With noble souls of company:
    There is nought dearer than to wend With good friends faithful to the end.
    This is the love whose fruit is sweet; Therefore to abide within is meet.

    Mahabharata (B.C.400)

    Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends
    will leave footprints in your heart.

    ~Eleanor Roosevelt

    "A friend is someone who sings your heart's song back to
    you when you have forgotten the words." ~

    ~David Collola

    "The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being.
    His heart withers if it does not answer another heart.
    His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts
    and finds no other inspiration."

    ~ Pearl S. Buck

    "Friendship is one mind in two bodies."

    ~ Mencius

    "Friendship without self - interest is one of the rare
    and beautiful things of life."

    ~ James F. Byrnes
