Friendship Day Poems

Side by side
Or miles apart,
A good friend like you (Jack),
Is always close to the heart 


Somehow in this great big world
I found my way to you
My friend across the computer lines
my heart, my soul, that's who.

You try to make me smile
with the mail you send my way.
You never fail to drop a line
each and every day.

Whenever I have hurried home
with something, I must share,
I find it just so comforting
that you are always there.

Encouragement you give me
and a friendship that is true.
I'm glad my soul while reaching out
found someone like you...


Friends care
Friends share
We need friends


My friend,
my companion,
through good times and bad
my friend,
my buddy,
through happy and sad,
beside me you stand,
beside me you walk,
you're there to listen,
you're there to talk,
with happiness,
with smiles,
with pain and tears,
I know you'll be there, throughout the years!

(Barbara) my friend
Many years ago
I fell in like with you
And I'm still head over heels in like with you
A further test of our friendship....
How many people could I say that to
Without fear of being misunderstood?

I'd like to be the sort of friend 
That you have been to me;
I'd like to be the help that you've 
Been always glad to be;
I'd like to mean as much to you 
Each minute of the day
As you have meant, old friend of mine,
To me along the way.
I'd like to do the big things
And the splendid things for you,
To brush the gray from out your skies 
And leave them only blue;
I'd like to say the kindly things 
That I so oft have heard,
And feel that I could rouse your soul
The way that mine you've stirred.
I'd like to give you back the joy 
That you have given me,
Yet that were wishing you a need 
I hope will never be;
I'd like to make you feel 
As rich as I, who travel on
Undaunted in the darkest hours 
With you to lean upon.
I'm wishing at this time 
That I could but repay
A portion of the gladness 
That you've strewn along my way;
And could I have one wish,
This only would it be:
I'd like to be the sort of friend 
That you have been to me.


Make new friends
But keep the old
One is sliver and the other gold

Circle round
That has no end
That's how long I want to be your friend!
