AHHHHHHHHHH!!!. . .Friends!!!. . .What would *LIFE* be without them???
We all have them or want or need them!!. . .Some are life long friendships!!
And others come and go. . .Leaving footprints on our heart!!
This page is all about friendships and how they are built and maintained throughout our lifes!!
I hope you enjoy these poems and pics!!
We all have friends at one time or another,
it's just how we treat them or them us
that makes the most difference in our lives!!



It's the feeling,
that two people get,
when they feel really good,
with each other,
and have from the moment,
they met!!

It's sharing the things,
they believe in,
no matter how different they are!!
And helping each other,
find courage!!
to follow their own unique star!!

It's completely relaxing together,
and it's taking all things in stride,
Because whether,
you're laughing or crying,
you have a true friend,
by your side!!

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!!

~ Susan Polis Schutz ~



Many the friends,
Who will walk by your side,
When you travel,
A smooth, even road!!

But few who remain,
When it's rocky and steep,
And you struggle,
To carry your load!!

Many the friends,
Who will praise,
Your success,
And applaud,
When you're up on the top!!

But few who are there,
Giving comfort and care,
When the cheers,
And the accolades stop!!

How rare are the friends,
Who, time and again,
Will show their commitment,
And worth!!

But a warmheart friend,
Who is true to the end,
Is a joy and a treasure on earth!!

What is a friend??. . .I'll tell you!!
It is a person with whom you dare to be yourself!!
Your soul can go naked with them!!

They seem to ask you to put on nothing,
only to be what you really are!!
When you are with them, you do not
have to be on your guard!!

You can say what you think,
as long as it is genuinely you!!
They understand these contradictions in your nature
that cause others to misjudge you!!

With them you breathe freely. . .you can avow your
little vanities and envies and absurdities and in
opening them up to them. . .they are dissolved
on the white ocean of their loyalty!!

They understand!!. . .You can weep with them,
laugh with them, pray with them. . .and through
and underneath it all they see, know and love you!!
A FRIEND, I repeat, is one with whom

I've nothing else to offer,
So it's love to you I'll send,
It's nothing that I borrowed,
And it's nothing that I'd lend!!
It has no dollar value
And it can't be over used!!
It isn't fragile so it will not break,
But often it's abused!!

I've given it to others,
But each time it is unique!!
It's meaning is always different,
Depending on what you seek!!
It's something you can store away
To feel when you're in need,
But never is it on display,
It's beauty can't be seen!!

I'm giving it to you,
No Strings Attached,
No Costly Warranty!!
Because this love that I am sending,
Has A Lifetime Guarantee!!

A lifetime of love in a hug and a smile,
A reason to visit and stay for a while,
The strength of a bond that's destined to last,
The joys of the present, the warmth of the past!!

These are the treasures a fortunate few,
Are lucky to cherish all their lives through!!
These are the blessings on which we depend,
For these are the gifts of a very best friend!!

~ Emily Matthews ~




Our friends are like angels,
Who brighten our days!!
In all kinds of wonderful,
Magical ways!!

Their thoughtfulness comes,
As a gift from above!!
And we feel we're surrounded,
By warm, caring love!!

Like upside-down rainbows,
Their smiles bring the sun!!
And they fill ho-hum moments,
With laughter and fun!!

Friends are like angels,
Without any wings!!
Blessing our lives,
With the most precious things!!

~ Emily Matthews ~



So often you're there when I am lonely,
You always sound glad when I call,
And it seems every time that I need you,
You say it's no trouble at all!!
So, I hope that if you ever need a favour,
I'm someone on whom you'll depend,
And I hope I can be
all that you've been to me. . .
For that's the true meaning of "friend"

~ Emily Matthews ~


Friends are quiet angels
who lift us to our feet
when our wings have trouble
remembering how to fly!!!

Some Friendships Are For Always!!
Nothing else can quite compare,
to the happiness we find,
In the comfort of a friendship
that's the warm and lasting kind!!

A friendship based on caring thoughts,
gentle, trusting ways,
Moments shared. . .both good and bad,
words of love and praise!!

And nothing else can quite compare,
to knowing, as friends do,
We'll share an understanding,
that will last a lifetime through!!

~ Emily Matthews ~



Each of us has a hidden place,
Somewhere deep within ourselves!!
A place where we go to get away,
To think things through,
To be alone, to be ourselves!!

This unique place, where we confront our deepest feelings,
Becomes a storehouse of all our hopes,
All our needs, all our dreams,
And even our unspoken fears!!
It encompasses the essence of who we are,
And what we want to be!!

But now and then, whether by chance or design,
Someone discovers a way into,
That place we thought was ours alone!!
And we allow that person to see, to feel and to share,
All the reason, all the uncertainty,
And all the emotion we've stored up there!!

That person adds new perspective to our hidden realm,
Then quietly settles down,
In his own corner of our special place,
Where a bit of himself will stay forever!!

And we call that person a *FRIEND*!!!

~ Carol Elaine Faivre-Scott ~



Don't walk in front of me,
I may not follow!!
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead!!
Just walk beside me and be my friend!!

A real friend is someone who walks in,
when the rest of the world walks out!!

Forgiveness is the glue,
that repairs broken relationships!!

Nature has given to men one tongue,
but two ears,
that we may hear from others,
twice as much as we speak!!

True friends are like diamonds,
precious and rare!!

A friend is someone who knows,
the song in your heart,
and can sing it back to you,
when you have forgotten the words!!

A friend is one who believes in you,
when you have ceased,
to believe in yourself!!

It takes a long time to grow an old friend!!
And I know that we will always be. . .

A good friend is someone,
to do nothing much with
and find "nothing much" so much fun!!

A good friend is talking and talking,
about everything under the sun!!

A good friend is someone who really is glad,
when you've worked for and won a success!!
Someone you don't have to be on your guard with,
or be what you aren't to impress!!

A good friend is so many wonderful someones,
all mixed in a marvelous blend,
Of memory making, of giving and taking,
a "now and forever" Good Friend!!

Thank you for believing in me,
when I found it difficult,
to believe in myself,
for saying what I've needed to hear sometimes,
instead of what I've wanted to hear,
for siding with me,
and for giving me another side to consider!!

Thank you for opening yourself up to me,
for trusting me with your thoughts,
and disappointments and dreams,
for knowing you can depend on me
and for asking my help when you've needed it!!

Thank you for putting so much,
thought and care and imagination,
into our friendship,
for sharing so many nice times,
and making so many special memories with me!!

Thank you for always being honest with me,
being kind to me. . .being there for me!!

Thank you for being a friend to me,
in so many meaningful ways!!

I've been online for over 7 years now!!. . .And I'm a night owl!!
So I spent alot of long nights online!!
And when I first started I had heard about IRC and chatting online and was very curious!!
So the first channel I ever visited was called 40plus in Chatnet. . .and it was better then I ever imagined!!
I met alot of people in there and formed some wonderful friendships!!
Some of which I will never ever forget!!
I even was lucky enough to chat with a very, very special caring man
who has become my very *best* friend
and still chats with me today after 7 years!!
I no longer go into any chat rooms whatsoever!!
But the following poems are very fitting!!
Altho I've never met any of these online friends face to face
and have lost touch thru the years!!
We did meet at one time thru our hearts and minds!!
And I often think of them and wonder what they are doing!!
But I am very thankful for the many nights we got together in 40plus
and chatted and had hours of fun and laughs!!
I'll always treasure those late nights so long ago and never forgotten!!
These poems are dedicated to all my old online friends who might
remember me as KATH^ a channel *OP* and *regular* from 40plus!!




We sit and type and we stare at our screens,
we all have to wonder what this possibly means!!

We chat with each other, we share our woes,
small groups we do form and gang up on our foes!!

We wait for somebody to type out our name,
we want recognition and offer the same!!

We give kisses and hugs and somtimes we flirt,
in rooms we chat deeply and reveal why we hurt!!

We form friendships but why is a thing we don't know,
though most of them flounder, some of them flourish and grow!!

Why is it that on screen, we can all be so bold,
telling our secrets that have never been told??

Why is it we share those deep thoughts in our mind,
with those we can't see, as though we were blind??

The answer is simple, it's all clear as a bell,
we all have our problems and need someone to tell!!

We can't tell "real" people, but tell someone we must,
as we turn to the puter, and to those we can trust!!

Even though it is crazy, the truth still remains,
they are friends without faces and with odd little names!!

~ UnKnown ~



I haven't ever seen you,
but I know you're really there
I click you into reality,
like magic from the air!!

Your voice is like an Angel,
though I really do not hear,
your hug as warm as any,
of loved ones I hold dear!!

You're always there for comfort,
or a simple word of cheer,
though you're very far away,
I always have you near!!

You're a very special friend,
like none I've ever known,
as long as you're in cyberspace,
I'll never be alone!!

I had some free time, so what did I do??
I checked the computer to see if I'd heard from you!!
I use to walk out to a box to retrieve mail!!
But I'd rather get it instantly, than wait on the snail!!

Checking my e-mail is always fun!!
I usually get a joke or greeting from someone!!
I feel so blessed because on the other end,
I know I've connected with a friend!!

When I've had a hard day and need to share,
Here I can find a friend who will listen and care!!
And to this friend I hope I've let them know,
That I am always there for them also!!

Isn't it a strange kind of bond we form??
It isn't exactly like the "norm"!!
But where is it written, face to face we must be,
For you to be a very good friend to me??

That little joke or note, or just a simple "Hi",
Could be like a ray of sunshine from the sky!!
So my E-Mail Pals, this is dedicated to you,
For all the smiles you have made anew!!

May our friendship continue to grow,
And the warmth we feel continue to flow!!
Always remember this. . .
A smile is such an easy thing to pass along the way,
Like a ray of summer sunshine,
On a somewhat gloomy day!!

Thank you for being my E-Mail Pal!!!
