A FRIEND LOVETH AT ALL TIMES


Though friends may make some errors
Sometimes not up to par ...
Their virtues still are many ...
So we love them as they are
We, too, oft fail to measure ...
To what we ought to be

We want our friends to love us
And give us loyalty ...
Allow for human frailty
Just stress whate'er is best ...
Then love will never falter
But meet true friendship's test!

  2. This is so in tune with something in my life this week. My friend since eighth grade sent me an awesome email this week telling me how much she cares about me and has always loved me as a sister. It is one of the best emails I have ever received and then I see your wonderful poem about friends.

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LOVELY FRIEND!

    This poem is ideal for today cos only a precious friend like u cud write something like that...cos only you know HOW to be a friend like that...a true friend. What a poem that was!


    **Allow for human frailty
    Just stress whate'er is best ...

    How true. u give words to all my feelings and that is the beauty of YOU. Sometimes I get speechless from the pain, wordless from these aching thoughts but u come around and give em all a voice, and Im healed. u r truly a VERY SPECIAL SOUL.

    hv a beautiful day today Margie! It's a blessed day cos u were born today. This world is more beautiful for hvn u in it. Imagine a world w.o. u, I'd be so poor.

    *HUGZ* hv an awesome bday with ur loved-ones! And TY for always being REAL.

    MUCH LOVE
    Keshi.

  5. Birthday Joy to you dear Margie!

    Your poetic expression of friendship reminds us that we are to be our own best friend as well,

    "And give us loyalty ...
    Allow for human frailty"

    for we cannot give what we do not yet possess.

    You

  9. Hi MArgie-

    Lovely poem. Friendship is such a gift. - a gift to be cherished and nurtured. Until, well. - sometimes, friendship's end too - and that is always sad.

    Love Gail
    peace.....

  10. Do what?
    Ask Keshi to marry me?

    TELL HER I LOVE HER if only she truly believes in Love.
    And love is made perfect in forgiveness.

    Cheers and God bless.

  20. Hello Jimmy
    I was puzzled by your comment and asked Keshi about it & she explained.
    Then I got it...Lol!
    Does not surprise me that he is (still) in love with Keshi!

    Take care and Smile:)

  21. Your poem dear Margie brought added focus to the words friend and friends. The letters that comprise the words "end" and "ends" seemed guided by:

    F= Freedom
    R= Right
    I= Intention

    and so in the "end" or "ends" be our ever present quest to share and be known. For the freedom of right intention - the ultimate reality known among friends.

    This so much our community of bloggers as friends...
