1. Friend

A friend in a person
to laugh and cry with,
An inspiration,
Someone who lends a helping hand,
though friends may not be forever,
And they may not end up together,
the memories of a true friendship will
last forever.
A friend is not a shadow nor a servant
But someone who hold
a piece of a person in his heart.
Someone who shares a smile,
Someone who brightens up your day
What makes a person a friend?
Is by saying your Love will stay.

—Renee Donna Bufete

2. With a Friend

I can talk with a friend
and walk with a friend
and share my umbrella
in the rain.

I can play with a friend
and stay with a friend
and learn with a friend
and explain.

I can eat with a friend
and compete with a friend
and even sometimes

I can ride with a friend
and take pride with a friend.
A friend can mean
so much to me!

—Vivian Gould

3. True Friend

A friend is like a star that twinkles and glows
Or maybe like the ocean that gently flows
A friend is like gold that you should treasure
And take care of forever and ever
A friend is like an angel that is there to guide you
A friend is someone you can trust out of a few
A friend is more than one in a million
They are one in a ca-zillion
And you, my friend, are very special
and so it is official.

—Ashley Campbell

4. New Friends and Old Friends

Make new friends, but keep the old;
Those are silver, these are gold.
New-made friendships, like new wine,
Age will mellow and refine.
Friendships that have stood the test-
Time and change- are surely best;
Brow may wrinkle, hair grow gray;
Friendship never knows decay.
For ‘mid old friends, tried and true,
Once more, we, our youth, renew.
But old friends, alas! May die;
New friends must their place supply.
Cherish friendship in your breast-
New is good, but old is best;
Make new friends, but keep the old;
Those are silver, these are gold.

—Joseph Parry

5. How Many? How Much?

How many slams in an old screen door?
Depends how loud you shut it.
How many slices in a bread?
Depends how thin you cut it.
How much good inside a day?
Depends how good you live ’em.
How much love inside a friend?
Depends how much you give ’em.

—Shel Silverstein

6. Friendship: One of God’s Greatest Gifts

I was the young age of three,
and oh, so very small.
I knew almost nothing,
nothing at all.

When I saw a cute little girl
shaking with fear,
all alone in the corner
with her eyes full of tears,

I thought to myself,
I’ll go be her friend.
So I went over to her
and touched her sweet little hand.

I said to my new friend,
“Do you want to play?”
My new friend said, “Yes,”
and her tears went away.

It’s been fifteen years now,
and our friendship’s still strong.
I can hardly believe
We’ve been best friends this long.

As I went to her that day,
I was the angel to be.
How could I have known
that God sent her to me?

But angels need two wings
if they don’t want to sit and just rest,
so God combined both our wings
to show us we’re blessed.

We can’t thank him enough
for his gift of kindness and love.
We are both each other’s angels
sent from heaven above!

—Lauren Manning

7. Forever Friends

You’r my friend, and that is true,
but the gift was given from me to you. We went thru moments that were good and bad,
even moments that were happy and sad. You supported me when I was in tears; we stuck together when we were in fear,
it’s really sad that it had to be this way,
but it has reached its very last day. Miles away cant keep us apart,
’cause you’ll always be in my heart.


8. Your Kind of Friendship

It takes more than caring
To be a real friend;
The nature of friendship;
Requires a blend
Of warmest compassion
And love deep and true
To reach and to comfort
The way that you do.
Because I can see
That your kind of friendship
Is priceless to me.


9. Why God Gave Us Friends

GOD knew that everyone needs
Companionship and cheer,
He knew that people need someone
Whose thoughts are always near.

He knew they need someone kind.
To lend a helping hand.
Someone to gladly take the time
To care and understand.

GOD knew that we all need someone
To share each happy day,
To be a source of courage
When troubles come our way.

Someone to be true to us,
Whether near or far apart.
Someone whose love we’ll always
Hold and treasure in our hearts.

That’s Why GOD Gave Us Friends!

—Gerry Mark

10. Best Friend

A best friend is a person who is always by your side.
Whether you need a shoulder to cry on or need some helpful advice
A friend can pep you up and take care of you.
They will listen with all their heart, just when you’re feeling blue.
They will always be honest and even tell you things that you may not want to hear.
But that is their job; they always want to make things clear.
Your best friend will keep all your secrets and guard them with their life.
They will understand all your fears and even take care of all your dreams.
And when the world gives up on you, they will still take your side.
They will be there for you always, and they will be your guide.
And so cherish your best friend, for they will forever be your friend.


11. A Friend

A friend is like a shade tree
Beside a summer way
A friend is like the sunshine
That makes a perfect day,
A friend is like a flower
That’s worn close to the heart,
A friend is like a treasure
With which one will not part.

—Zoe Gonzales

12. Pure Delight

It’s such a pleasure and joy.
To have a friend like you.
You always care, you’re always there,
You say the right things, too!

You make me smile when I am low.
You’re just a pure delight.
We talk a lot about everything.
You make my life so bright!

I hope that I am giving you
Some joy and happiness
Because you mean so much to me
More than I can express!

—Joanna Fuchs

13. If I Could Catch A Rainbow

If I could catch a rainbow, I would do it, just for you,
And, share with you, its beauty, on the days you’re feeling blue.
If I could, I would build a mountain, you could call your very own.
A place to find serenity, a place just to be alone.

If I could, I would take your troubles, and toss them into the sea.
But, all these things, I’m finding, are impossible for me.

I cannot build a mountain, or catch a rainbow fair;
but, let me be, what I know best,
A Friend, who’s always there.

I promise to defend you, should the occasion ever rise,
And, I promise to wipe away the tears,
which might stream from your weeping eyes.

Let me be the trusted Friend, the one that you know best.
I will never leave you, on that, you can surely rest.

—Sandra Lewis Pringle

14. I Can Be a Pal

I can be a pal by smiling at you.
I can be a pal when you feel blue.
I can be a pal who is honest and kind.
I can be a pal when you’re in a bind.
I can be a pal by saying please and thank you.
I can be a pal when no one wants to.
I can be a pal every single day.
I can be a pal; what do you say?

—Kristen Smith

15. Friends

Friends come in many shapes and sizes
They can be a sister or a mother
We cherish them all the same
We love them like no other
We share the laughter and the tears
Together through the ups and downs that come
A friend makes us realize
That two are better than one!


16. The Best of Friends

The best of friends,
Can change a frown,
Into a smile,
when you feel down.
The best of friends,
Will understand,
Your little trials,
And lend a hand.
The best of friends,
Will always share,
Your secret dreams,
Because they care.
The best of friends,
Worth more than gold,
Give all the love,
A heart can hold.

—S Jill Wolf

17. A Friend

A friend is that special someone whom we can always turn to
When we need someone who can lift our spirits and make us smile
Someone whom we truly treasure can be called a friend
And the friendship is a cherished gift.
Friends can fill up our life with all the joy and beauty in the world.
And can make this world a more beautiful place, where everyone is happy.
So treasure your friends and keep them close.
They are the ones who will be by your side when the world’s not.
Friendships are priceless, so always value them as much as you can


18. True Friend

When you find your true friend, you know.
That in your heart, you will be forever young.
You will always be in your hearts how you used to be
When you were chasing butterflies through the fields
That is the magic and the beauty of true friendship.
Time does not stay the same, though you may be older.
But in your hearts, you will forever be this way.
And years later, when you all meet again.
There will still be talks of the rainbows in the sunny rain.
And then you will know what gems you have gathered.
So to your friends, always be true no matter what.
For they will be there for you when nobody is
For that is what friendship is about, that is what true friendship is.


19. Thank You For Your Friendship And Your Love

Thank you for your friendship and your love.
However life may turn, this gift will be
A mountain that has made my river bend,
Nor will it flow the same way to the sea.
Knowing you is some thing I’m made of.
Years will not this part of me remove.
One lives for just a brief eternity,
Understanding truths that never end.

—Nicholas Gordon

20. A Friend

A person who will listen and not condemn
Someone on whom you can depend
They will not flee when bad times are here
Instead, they will be there to lend an ear
They will think of ways to make you smile
So you can be happy for a while
When times are good and happy thereafter
They will be there to share the laughter
Do not forget your friends at all
For they pick you up when you fall
Do not expect to just take and hold
Give friendship back; it is pure gold.

—Gillian Jones
