"The Bonds of Friendship"



How blessed are the bonds of friendship
Tied with the ribbons of love.
How sweet and very refreshing
Sent from Heaven above.
~
That quiet understanding,
The sympathy and care.
The sweet reassurance
That friends are always there.
~
The genuine interest,
The total honesty, the listening ear.
The tenderness and thoughts
Of those we hold so dear.
~
That sharing of times long gone
When days were different and clear.
The patience of a friends love
Helping to diminish fear.
~
Discussions of music and laughter
Romance and love so true.
The question asked “Do you understand?”
The response “Of course I do.”
~
Going back to the days of youth
And the sharing of a romantic thought,
How special is this friendship
When to me you it brought.
~
How blessed are the bonds of friendship
Tied with the ribbons of love,
How sweet and very refreshing
Sent from Heaven above.
