What is a friend except a part of me
My friends are love songs I was born to sing
They are gifts who choose to really know me
The ones who I trust with my everything
True friends are the ones who truly can see
What I have inside that I'm meant to bring
They push me so hard and still let me be
The fabric of my life the weaver weaves
Friends make me better help me to believe

First attempt at form

    I like this form, will have to try it. I also like your thoughts on friends, don't know what I'd do without mine. They are essential to my well-being in life.

    Wonderful first attempt Rick! That's what friends are for, supporting each other, understands and willingly to accept our weak and strong, and many more :D - hug, yanny

    Within rules we discover new freedoms. Reading and following the instructions in the Bible are but one example.
