    Bonds Of Friendship

    When days are filled with sunshine How close we hold a friend; it's good to share the laughter, the dreams that have no end. And it is fun exchanging some episode of fun and finding much in common, in all that you have done. But when the days are shadowed, Perhaps with pain or...

    I can't understand why people feel

    that you always have to be the one contacting them in order to keep their friendship. Isn't it a two way street? These were the last people I thought that would totally drop off the face of the earth and do this. Deeply hurt and saddened.

    She doesn't know her beauty,

    she questions her worth. These days life has not been kind to her, she wishes for rebirth. She pulls the covers around her to drown out the world and feels all alone. He doesn't understand her sorrow all he does is ***** and moan. She's tried til her heart is heavy her bones...

    True Friendship

    With you, it's all about voiceless communication- always knowing exactly what to say, but never actually having to say it. When no one seems to be listening, you hear. When I hurt but don't show it, you know. When I turn away to hide my tears, you see. When I feel like I can't...

    You Know It!

    True friends at hard to come by, at least for me. If I can find a true friend or two, I'd treasure the friendship we have. I'd like to have a true friend, I really do.

    There is a little light

    that flickers in all of our hearts. Some fan it gently with whispers of hope, while others try to blow out its flame. And in the distinction between those two winds, lies the secret to knowing your true friends. Because while both may be stirring the air around the same spark...

    Friend Versus Best Friend

    A friend has never seen you cry. Your best friend has shoulders soggy from your tears. A friend doesn't know your parents' first names. Your best friend has their phone numbers in her address book. A friend brings a bottle of wine to your party. Your best friend comes early to...

    My Theory On Friends

    When I was a young girl, my mother told me that I would be able to count all my friends on one hand and still have fingers left over...I didn't really digest and understand that concept until I was much older. I have family that I am not the least bit close to and then I have my...

    Don't Have Many

    True friendship withstands all hardships and petty disagreements life throws at you. I have several close friends, but only very few I consider a true friend - one that will never loose touch, or leave - even if they find out something about me they disagree with. Out...

    I Have Something To Say.

    I want you all to know. You can never have too many best friends. It is better to have a true friend than an aquaintance. It has taken me many friendships to figure out others around me. There were many times when I would be friends with someone to discover that they weren't...

    Best friends are people you don't need to talk to every single day. You don't need to talk to each other for weeks. But when you do it's as if you'd never stopped talking.
