Day 26: Friendship

So very true.

Make new friends, but keep the old;
Those are silver, these are gold.
New-made friendships, like new wine,
Age will mellow and refine.
Friendships that have stood the test -
Time and change - are surely best;
Brow may wrinkle, hair grow gray,
Friendship never knows decay.
For 'mid old friends, tried and true,
Once more we our youth renew.
But old friends, alas! may die,
New friends must their place supply.
Cherish friendship in your breast-
New is good, but old is best;
Make new friends, but keep the old;
Those are silver, these are gold.

So now rather than boast about my friends many talents and strong points till I make you all fall down in a pile of schmaltzy shtick I thought I'd use this opportunity to flex my poetry bone in order to best describe how I feel about my friends.
Excuse me if it sounds adolescent, it seems this is my style...
no matter how hard I try to write otherwise :/

Blessed Friends © Katerina Berry
Without friends the world looks dreary,
Without friends my heart grows weary.
The love of friends it keeps me strong,
The Love of friends is a chosen bond.
So many friends by them I'm blessed,
They've chosen me out from the rest
To have and hold, kept by their side
In this roller-coaster lifelong ride.
Each friendship made and even those broken
a chapter of my life they have spoken
And even though I've been blessed with few
My friends please know I am blessed to have you.
Couldn't agree more.

Kat, this was wonderful and I hope you don't mind if I let the people who follow me see it as well.

Thank you so much, that's very kind. I suppose I shouldn't be too embarrassed since i've put it out there in the big wide web :)
