Friends are important. And I could write long posts about friends and friendship. But I am just going to post a little poem I just wrote. It’s not great, because I am certainly not a master poet. But. I post anyway. =)
To have a friend, oh what comfort,
to you strength they lend, when you’re hurt.
Nothing needs be said, but close they stay,
to listen with bowed head, as they ever pray.
Never far away, ready to come at every call,
everything aside to lay, to pick you up when you fall.
These are friends, close and dear,
the brothers and sisters of Jesus, and with them never shall I fear.
