Friends - Poem by Roxanne Dubarry

Friends are truly beautifl people who
Mean a lot to you.
In the game of life,
They see you through.
Like graceful butterflies
In flight, they
Brighten up your
Days and Nights.
January 24,1994

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was an in-patient in the Mukilteo Evaluation and Treatment Center (EvT) . I was in an art and crafts group, and we were designing cards for our friends. I drew butterflies on my card, but I did not know what to write on it.

We started talking about friendship and how supportive we should be to each other. That's when the light went on, and I composed my greeting card poem.

Over the years, I have handed out this poem to several people. It made us all feel better and good about ourselves. That's what I used to do, hand out poems written by my mother and me.

    Yes, friends are beautiful or pleasant people in our life
    And, great analogy of the butterflies; it's a 'one of a kinder' :)

    Another greatest poem of 'all time' and dear '10'
