Friends

Friends

Cyber, pen-pal, in-need
Best, frenemies, with benefits,
In high places, long lost
Close or passing acquaintances
These are a few of the many types of friends.

Like the rose friends come in many shapes, sizes and colors. Roses are white, red and blue. Sometimes roses are a bush. Sometimes they are single plant. And other times they are a bouquet. So it is with friends.
Friends are to be cherished as one would cherish a prize rose. The rose must be fed, watered and nurtured to be strong and healthy. So it is with friends.
Friends can be like two ships passing in the night. Occasionally the ships sail together. And other times they are together for a short period and then they are gone. So it is with friends.
Like a peaceful meandering river, friends are fluid. Sometimes the river pools and stays in one spot. Most times the river just flows along aiding growth and giving life to the land. So it is with friends.
Friends are part of everyone’s life. Friends are to be loved and held dear. Friends can last a lifetime. Be nice to your friends and treat them respectfully.
