~THE VALUE OF TRUE FRIENDSHIP~

THE VALUE OF TRUE FRIENDSHIP
((C)BY Karen Kelley
May23rd.2010

A true friend will always be there
No matter what the problem may be
Tho it may seem small to others
To you it's life changing things you see .

A friend never judges, just listens standing by
Gives you someone to depend on when you're feeling weak
And never dismisses your concerns ,
With some trite little speech .

There is always a hand that is holding yours
Whether you're next door, or a thousand miles between
Just a simple phone call or a message on your e-mail
Brings that special friend and a promise on which to lean .

Best friends are special earth angels, God given to you
Because He knows there are times when the path we walk
Takes unexpected twists and turns, sometimes we get so lost
But your best friends 'prayers are there to guide you thru .

Best friends love you just because you are you
They're not going to ask for any more than that
God gave us friends to help dry our tears too
Because sometimes that is all even a best friend can do .


When I leave this old troubled world behind
I want to be remembered as one who loved
Who gave freely and spoke both soft and kind
A true friend who stood beside you, prayed to God above .

To send Angels to watch over you when she no longer could
You've been that kind of friend ,so special to me
This world is a better place because I knew you would
Always stand in the gap , being all a friend should be .

So thank You Lord for patiently teaching me to see
The value of true friendship and the love You gave to me!!!

Karen,

As always, you have written a most beautiful poem. It is almost as beautiful as you are. You have a way of putting words together that make every poem sound like a love song. Your sweet spirit is filled up with so much love that it has to come out in every thing you think, say and do. You are an angel and anyone who has your friendship knows the best of everything. A beautiful poem from a lady of the highest quality.

Love you,
Your Sissy

DEAR KAREN, A BEAUTIFUL POEM OF FRIENDSHIP. WE ARE SO LUCKY TO HAVE EACH OTHER IN HUGS TO LOVE AND HAVE FRIENDSHIP WITH. MANY ARE LONELY AND HAVE NOT A FRIEND TO LEAN ON. YOUR POEM STRIKES THE HEART AND SOUL. I CAN RELATE TO EVERY WORD AND HOW IMPORTANT A FRIENDSHIP IS, WORTH MORE THAN GOLD. GOD BLESS YOU. LOVE BRENDA

Karen I join the others in saying what a beautiful poem this is. We have many acquaintances in life that we call friends but true friends who stand by us are few and far between. And this poem describes that friendship to a tee. Thank You for sharing it...Rob

I JUST WANT TO THANK EACH OF YOU FOR YOUR KIND COMMENTS ON MY POEM. MY DEAR FRIEND, KAREN BUNKER HELPS ME WITH POSTING. I AM STILL NOT QUITE UP TO PAR BUT DID NOT WANT YOU GUYS TO THINK I DO NOT CARE BECAUSE I CARE MORE THAN WORDS CAN SAY. THANK YOU JEFF FOR YOUR KINDNESS IN NOMINATING IT FOR AN E CARD, APPARENTLY YOU LIKE IT BETTER THAN WHOEVER DOES THAT PART, LOL. I JUST WRITE FROM MY HEART WHAT GOD SENDS ME, AND JUST PRAY THAT IT TOUCHES SOMEONE'S HEART IN A POSITIVE WAY. PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR NOT ANSWERING EACH OF YOU , BUT DOING IT ALL AT ONCE TO ALL. BUT MY LOVE IS MEANT FOR EACH OF YOU AND I AM SORRY IT HAS TAKEN SOOO LONG TO EVEN SAY 'THANK YOU'. STILL FIGHTING THE BATTLE AND THANK EACH OF YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS. I KNOW I WOULD NOT STILL BE HERE WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF ALL YOUR PRAYERS. GOD BLESS AND KEEP EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU. ((((((((((HUGS))))))))) :) ))(( ))(( )))((( )))(((
RESPECTFULLY,
KAREN K.
