           Friends                      


Friendships shape a life

Make it worth living
Memories from the gift
Memories in the giving.
Strength in the numberMarley and Pete
The enduring power of two
Doing whatever it takes
Knowing what to do


Staying right beside you

Throughout the unplanned
Still managing to know
When they don’t understand

Hearing the hidden meaning
Of the thoughts left unsaid
The silence between the words
The struggles inside your head

Protecting necessary solitude
When reality takes its toll
Sharing pleasure, dividing pain
Two friends, one soul

Exchanging of vulnerability
No question and no doubt
Always worth suffering for
Walks in, when others walk out

Accepting of what life deals you
Top of the pile or bottom shelf
Does not matter what you are
Total freedom to be yourself     Pizza and worms

Acting your age is optional
Speaking your mind expected
The more absurd the better
Most language is accepted

Criticizing when it’s required
Subtle reminders of pretense
Calmly putting you in your place
You knowing it makes sense

Trusting that it stays here
The bond as strong as the word
The vault is always left open
What is said, is never heard

Connecting you to two lives
A defining link to your past  
A certain part of your future
Friends first, and friends last

Remaining close in spirit
No matter how far
It’s not just what you do
A friend is who you are.
