Components Of A Gem - Poem by Janette Anderson

Friendship is a gem and if it should land our way

We must treasure its worth -- the essence

of its delicacy.

Today we're friends, but tomorrow may unveil

Flaws we somehow missed, defects we cannot adopt

cause qualms not meant to be.

Take not for granted your friend

To censure or mold

Dedication is a capital element of

preserving will to endure.

Friendship can enhance our lives and bear the greatest abuse

But when misused and exploited fragments loosen

To know friendship in an honor as well as a harmony within

Aimed to add beauty to our lives, for the heart to cherish

Design a sanctuary inside its secret cavity.

Because without, this gem risks disintegration.
