Fulfilling Friendships

What a difference a friend can make in our lives and our attitudes
A friend is one who can see your best underneath what's not so good.
They encourage you to laugh at your fears, and take their power away;
They will fight for you when you're too weak to fight your own prey.

They expect that you will, when able, pick up your spirit's sword again;
They do not delight in the vulnerability or dependence of their friend.
They take over only when necessary to keep your plan on course;
They never look back at the times they helped you, with remorse.

And when it is time for you to stand strong on your own,
They will always be available to you with their hearts and homes.
But they will back away should you continue to deny your strength,
Because they want you to achieve the life for which you were meant.

And they will always be waiting silently in the wings of your life,
Like the partners who are committed as husband and wife.
Because a true lifetime friend also has parts of your soul;
Without you they will continue to miss this piece that makes them whole.

  1. FRIENDS! I had one. I lost him a couple years ago. Many times still, I am LOST without that arm to lean on. And yes I was there for him, all the way to the end.

    FRIENDS, I wish I could go to Wal-mart and get another, but you do not buy friends.

    Again lady, you say some good things!!!
