This is a poem about friendship, written for a contest on

"True friends are like diamonds,
precious but rare --
false friends are like the autumn leaves:
scattered everywhere".

† † † † † † † by anonymous

For Friendship

Since true friends are like diamonds,
I love how you shine --
Your friendship I'll cherish
through good times -- and "whine". †

Never feel lonely,
never be blue --
Remember I'll always
be thinking of you. †

If life throw us curves,
our friendship won't die --
So let's hoist a cup
to toast you -- and I.

If ever you leave,
I won't even be sad --
For I know you'll be with me
through the good and the bad.

The world will move onward,
and our lives might part.
But you're the best friend
I've got -- here in my heart.
