The ABCs of Friendship Poem

Old Friends

The fabric of friendship on which we’ve sewn,
A special bond between us has grown,
A loyalty that only we hold,
Inseparable as friends as we grow old.

For My Friends

I am thankful, really thankful,
For all my friends, you see.
My friends are understanding,
They’re always there for me.
They sometimes appear in numbers
And unite when I’m in need.
Yes, I am really thankful
To have these friends, indeed!

A Friend on Call

When something’s wrong or something’s right,
You’re the one I call.
I might feel discombobulated,
Or nothing’s wrong at all.
You’re always there to listen
When I am out of whack.
I’m lucky to have a friend like you…
Who always calls me back!
