You My Friend

You my friend
You don’t always show it,
but I know that you care.
You My friend
If I’d ever need you,
I know you’d be there.
You I’m glad you’re my friend.
Your smile makes me smile.
Your pain makes me hurt.
You My friend

Friendship poem

Fold two hands together,
And express a dash of sorrow,
Marinate it overnight,
And work on it tomorrow.
Chop one grudge in tiny pieces,
Add several cups of love,
Dredge with a large sized smile,
And mix the ingredients above.
Dissolve the hate within you,
By doing a very good deed,
Dash in some help for any friend,
If they should be in need.
Stir in laughter, love and kindness,

Best Friends

"Friends are the persons who walk into your life when everyone walks out". This is a simple and beautiful description of friend. When you make friends, it is one the most important decision that you take in your life, although you don't realize this fact at that moment. You include a person in your life. It is through the slow and gradual development of the relationship that you understand the worth of your decision. The time you spend with the person will tell you whether your selection was right or wrong. The journey of the person from a friend to a best friend or true friend is not an easy one.

The adjective best itself differentiate a friend from best friend. Best means who is extraordinary and above the rest. The most essential element of friendship is to understand the moments of crisis in your friend's life and standing beside him. The essence of true friendship is trust, understanding, loyalty and support. One has to be really compassionate towards his/her friend. People finds themselves blessed if they have a true friend. They are assured companion who will hold you with hands of comfort and give you a shoulder to cry. A true friend is a prized possession and you must value it.

The sweet and sour experiences of life are entirely dependent on the people that are a part of our life. It is they who make our life meaningful or worthless. Most of the relations are associated with us from the time of our birth. The single opportunity that life offers when you can select a companion for yourself is choosing a friend. A person with whom you can share everything who and accompanies you in the thick and thin of your life. A friend is a blessing in disguise. They are gift from God, to support you when you are ransacked or left all alone by everyone else in this world.

Friendship Letters

Letters are the best way one can express his/her deep inner feelings to a person. It is perhaps the only means which gives rightful vent to your sensitivity and emotions. It lets the other person know your true self, because when it comes to writing we usually tend to pen down our deep inner thoughts which we might not articulate through words spoken verbally. A hand written letter, filled with heart felt gratitude, might be the best gift which you can give to your beloved friend on this Friendship Day. Check out some ideas and tips that will help you in penning down your thoughts, in the form of a Friendship Day letter.
  • Your letter need not be an exclusive work of literature or prose, but it should surely be an exposition of your feelings for your friend.
  • Make an effort to get a nice letter-pad from the market, rather than write it on a piece of paper torn from the middle of the notebook.
  • Gather your thoughts before penning it down. Think about you want to write and then start writing.
  • Put down some old records or reminisces about the happy times.
  • Attach a photograph with the letter, which depicts the beautiful relationship that the two of you share.
  • In case there is no photograph, chip in some stickers of cartoon characters that both of you adore.
  • Create a riot of colors, but make sure that it's not overdone.
  • Write a joke or two to have humor in your letter
  • Start on a light note and proceed slowly to make it a platform for the expression of your feelings
  • End with an emotional touch to let them know how much they mean to you.
  • Do remember to thank your friend for being there always.
  • Whatever you do, just make sure that you need not be perfect at it. The thought of writing a letter and the effort undertaken matters the most, while rest can just be excluded.

Friendly Friendship Tips

 Research shows that "surprisingly few adults" report having close, personal friends, with whom they could feel safe in discussing almost anything and whom they felt they could count on for help in times of need.  Only 20% of the men and 53% of the ladies in a national survey reported having such a friend. There seems to be so little time anymore to hug, to talk, to listen, and/or to care.  So little time to enjoy and establish intimate, life-changing relationships outside of our own families.
 The report also noted that nearly everyone had such a friend as a child or as a teenager, but such relationships seem harder to begin, or maintain, in the adult years.  Likewise, those surveyed shared a desire for deep personal and honest friendship, yet they knew many of their business associates and neighbors whom they call friends, would quickly drop them under many circumstances.
 In fact, someone once wrote in response to the command of Jesus to “love your neighbor:” "It's hard enough these days to love a wife, a husband, a kid, or a parent.  How can we possibly love the world--and particularly our neighbor in that world?"  The writer raises a good question.
 Nonetheless, Jesus commanded in Luke 16:9, “And I say, make friends for yourselves.”
 Genesis 2 notes the creation of man. God places Adam in the beautiful Garden of Eden. He has scenery beyond compare. Animals of every type and they're all tame. He has ample food and provision. YET SOMETHING IS MISSING! Thus, verse 18 notes: “It is not good for the man to be alone.”
 The reason behind this awesome need is God created us to be social creatures.  Our need for others is deeply rooted in the way God designed the human race.  Remember with me Genesis, Chapter 1. Seven times here, God looked at what He had made and said, “It is good.”  From the light to the land to the fish of the sea - each time He made something, He expressed pleasure over His creation. But in Chapter 2, God saw something that was not good. He looked at Adam sitting all by himself and again said, It is not good for the man to be alone.”
 But was Adam alone? He had nature. He had a peaceful relationship with all the animals. He even had a special and unique relationship with God. They walked and talked together. Yet, all of this was not enough. Something was still missing.  Adam was still alone. 
 Notice now Genesis 2:21-22, So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.”
 When God went searching for a remedy to Adam's loneliness, out of all of the options open and remedies available, HE GAVE ADAM ANOTHER HUMAN BEING; He gave Adam Eve.  Only someone made of the same "stuff" as Adam would be capable of meeting this real need of intimacy.  HAD EVE NOT BEEN TAKEN FROM ADAM'S RIB, SHE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO CAPTURE ADAM’S HEART!
The point is, we were all created with a need that only friendship and companionship with another person can fill.
 On a TV program in Los Angeles, which had to do with the most annoying noises, a commentator asked a number of people what noise bothered them more than any other.  One man, apparently weary of traffic jams, said, "Freeway noise, that's undoubtedly the worst.  At 5:00 it's the most unbearable."  A woman who lives next to L.A. International Airport answered, "Those jets taking off and landing. I don't think I can stand them any longer."  It was a young man, though, who gave the answer that intrigued me the most.  Notice his words.  "Loneliness is the most terrible noise in my life.  Yeah," he said, "being alone.  Quietness.  I can't take it."
