Friendship And Love - Poem by Practicing Poetess

Friendship and Love,
Both alike in some ways.
Their similarities
Simply amaze.
Both require sharing
And common ground
Trust and commitment
Must also abound.
Keeping a confidence,
Sacrifice,
Protecting each other
And giving advice.
Knowledge and understanding
Prevail
Caring and loyalty
Never will fail.
Such are the twins
Of friendship and love,
Both of them authored
In Heaven above.

    Thank you, Carl!
    Have heard my entire life that sometimes friendship can lead to love. Also, the old saying that 'The ideal marriage is to marry your best friend.' I had been thinking on what friendship and love shared in common, and this is the poem that resulted!

    Friendship and love, they are moving the world. And good poetry too (Report)Reply

    Kostas, I agree that friendship and love will always move the world. But poetry as an art form seems to be dying out, and underappreciated in many parts of the world. That is why it is up to us, the poets, to keep it alive!
