YOUR FRIENDSHIP IS BEYOND MEASURE


Your Friendship Is Beyond Measure


Your friendship is somuch beyond compare ……. Reasons are:


You are there to listen to me when no one ever listened,
You are there to keep my secret when no one did,
You were there to keep me secure,
And hold me tight;
Not allowing the bed bugs to bite.
Your Friendship Is Beyond Measure!


You are there when I needed you when no once cared,
You are there to call out to though no reason at all,
You are there to smile at me when all around mock me,
You were there to laugh with me, though a bad joke,
Your Friendship Is Beyond Measure.

You are there to walk with, when none sought to,
You were there to talk to, when none appeared to,
You are there to hold my hands, rub it so tenderly and
Say: All will be fine:
I cry and wonder why?
Your Friendship Is Beyond Measure.


You are there in my sorrows,
You are there in my joys,
You are there to let me know what this world consists of.
You are there to give me the love I once lost...
Your Friendship Is Beyond Measure.

You are there to contemplate on,
You are there to incline on,
You are there to confide in,
You are there to counsel me,
You are there to reassure me,
You are there to help me find delight in everything I do,
Now you make me feel light headed both in spirit and in soul………..
Your presence is what I needed the most …..
Your friendship is beyond all.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
