love my friends!!!!


by Randall Beers

I accept you in confidence,

I listen and admire your wisdom.

We are one when we are together,

You and I will always be friends.

When you are angry,

I am there to sooth your aggression.

When you are sad,

I am there to cheer you up.

We understand each others thoughts,

Words with us aren’t needed.

We have a trust that is very rare,

You and I will always be friends.

What we enjoy doing together comes natural,

We accept life and move ahead.

I am your shadow and you mine,

We are inseparable if only in mind.

The bond between friends can be as, or stronger than with family member. So it was with Sunshine who was my best friend.

Friendship isn't always easily described. The Eskimos, they say, have a hundred different words for snow. Unfortunately, the English language isn't quite as innovative, though it has vast opportunities to differentiate meaning. Certainly, Love is one of those opportunities. And so, too, is Friendship.
Instead of different words, however, we're stuck with simple adjectives. Close friend. Best friend. Childhood friend. Intimate friend. Trusted friend. Beloved friend. But whether you use adjectives or different words, few could deny the nearly infinite meaning in such a simple word.
Friends are special people. We can't pick our family, and we're sorely limited in the number of them at any rate. Society and mores (and often our own conscience) dictate we select a single mate. But our friends can be as diverse and infinite as the adjectives we choose. Our friends, in a very real sense, reflect the choices we make in life.
