True Friendship is a Gift from God

True Friendship is a gift from God Among the many gifts I have received Friendship is the best one I perceive True friends don’t just come in passing You've got to be one too, to make that happen. In the world, treasures abound in plenty What good are they, for in love and care, they seem empty? When you are down and need an uplifting word Not to treasures but to friends you look toward. Sharing deep secrets and feelings which hurt The merging of the two brings relief and comfort In their presence you find cosiness and joy ‘Cause that is a communion true friends enjoy! In life’s busy paths many folk come your way Though finding new friends seems like a breath of fresh air Do not forget the old faithful for the new God sent them to lend you their ear and shoulder too.

Friendship is one the few things we can share in this world that is offered without cost and hasn't yet been taxed by the government. Your thoughts here are so perfect and bursting with good advice... Nicely written, easily read with a good flow
