Friends are the jewels we gather
To set in the crown of life,
Through their sparkle life shines.

They are the silken threads we weave
Into the rich tapestry of  life,
Giving it joy and splendor.

On a winter’s day
They are the summer’s sun
That pierces gloom
To chase away clouds of despair.

And when we sail stormy waters;
As the maelstroms of  life
Rage and threaten to drag us down,
Friends are a harbor of LOVE and PEACE.

    How true! Our friends define us to a large degree. Our true overall value in this life can be weighed in the teardrops of our friends and family at our passing:) Congrats on making the first round with this lovely piece Sylvia and good luck!

    I like this one too. Friends are important they take the place of the nasty family members you can't get rid of.
