I Am Your Friend ...

I Am Your Friend

You may not see me now
But you know that I am here.
You can feel me in your heart
As you enter each new day.

I will always be there for you
I am your friend.
Someone to share the good times
As well as the bad.

I make no judgments by what you say
I just listen with my heart and
Hope to be of help in anyway I can.

I will be there for you now and forever
And always please remember
I am your friend!

True Friendship

True friendship isn't seen with the eyes, it is felt with the heart.
When there is trust, understanding, loyalty, and sharing.

True friendship is a rare feeling, but when it is found
It has profound impact on our well-being, strength, and character.

True friendship does not need elaborate gifts
Or spectacular events in order to be valuable or valued.
To ensure long-lasting quality and satisfaction,

True friendship only needs a few key ingredients:
Undying loyalty, unmatched understanding, unsurpassed trust,
Deep and soulful secrets, and endless sharing.

These ingredients, mixed with personality and a sense of humor,
Can make a friendship last a lifetime!

This is just a thank you, my friend, for all the wonderful and colorful
Special ingredients You've brought to my life!
