NEW POEM(S): No NEW Poems at this time.

By: Susan Polis Schutz

There are many people

that we meet in our lives

but only a very few

will make a lasting impression

on our minds and hearts

It is these people that we will

think of often

and who will always remain

important to us

as true friends

By: Winifred Stewart Brown

After a while you learn

that what you really are

is all the experiences

and all the thoughts

you've ever had

and all the people

who have touched your life,

no matter how briefly.

After a while you learn

that troubles are temporary

and relationships

aren't always permanent.

You learn that many people

come into your life

and fade into forgetfulness,

while others remain

as warm places in your heart.

You learn to forgive the bad times

and overcome the resentments.

And you learn to live

with love in your heart

for the good times

and for the good friends

who may not be present,

but who never go away,

because the warmth of their friendship

and their essence lives within you

and becomes a part of what you are.

By: Sandra Sturtz Hauss

A Friend is someone who listens

without judging you right or wrong, good or bad,

and gently helps you define your thoughts

to regain perspective.

When you're feeling bad about yourself,

a friend is there to remind you

of all those positive qualitites

you may have forgotten.

When you share with a friend,

decision-making becomes easier

and problems seem less critical.

A friend gives you the priceless gift of time:

time to share, to try out new ideas

and rethink old ones.

No matter how often you're together,

you discover dimensions of yourself

through the bonds and the mirror of friendship.

A friend loves you for who you are,

not what you do.

Feeling so accepted,

you are able to set higher goals,

try harder, and achieve more.

Through close friendship,

you learn the fine art of giving.

You expand, become more selfless,

feel more deeply, and help more effectively.

Seeing the happiness you bring to another person

gives you a greater sense of well-being

and increases your capacity to love.

Wherever you go in life,

whatever stage or place you reach,

a friend who has entered your soul

is always with you, gently guiding, faithfully following,

and ever walking beside you.

By: Grace Stricker Dawson

You entered my life in a casual way,

And saw at a glance what I needed;

There were others who passed me or met me each day,

But never a one of them heeded.

Perhaps you were thinking of other folks more,

Or chance simply seemed to decree it;

I know there were many such chances before,

But the others-well, they didn't see it.

You said just the thing that I wished you would say,

And you made me believe that you meant it;

I held up my head in the old gallant way,

And resolved you should never repent it.

There are times when encouragement means such a lot,

And a word is enough to convey it;

There were others who could have, as easy as not-

But, just the same, they didn't say it.

There may have been someone who could have done more

To help me along, though I doubt it;

What I needed was cheering, and always before

They had let me plod onward without it.

You helped to refashion the dream of my heart,

And made me turn eagerly to it;

There were others who might have (I question that part)-

But, after all, they didn't do it!

This page is dedicated to all of my friends who I've known throughout the years. I'm very glad to have a person like you in my life. It means everything to me.
