Something I wrote a bit ago, just needed to look it over about friendship. Love and Light



We can always count our friends

They put up with us

Help us when down to mend

Someone we can trust



We can tell them all our dark secrets

And they still stay beside us

Never inciting us to anger

But always have a compassionate heart



Like our pets, don’t care about appearances

Of course they are not our pets

But they accept us wholly and unconditionally

Sarah Ockler said:

“In your entire life, you can probably count your true friends on one hand. Maybe even on one finger. Those are the friends you need to cherish, and I wouldn't trade one of them for a hundred of the other kind.


 I am truly blessed, for I have three

I once had four

But we mustn’t look at our losses

We should always be grateful

For that which we have gained



And we always should be that same

One and true friend in like manner

For something so cherished

You nary want to lose


Carolee Dennis-Woosley

As I have stated many times, true friends (and often, there may be only one), are a treasure. The theme you share via your verses is of universal importance, Carol. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

True friends are rare indeed. Thank you for sharing! I have a handful also and go once a year on Memorial day to grieve one gone on to heaven. I miss her, but know one day I get to see her again!

I bow and tip my hat to you

Nicely said. Friendship is more durable than steel, requires little cultivation once established and lasts a lifetime and beyond.

So few are real friends anymore. As a child I thought I had many. In my days as a young man, I thought I had several. In my aging days so few can I claim to be true. Time has let them slip away to mere memories if that. You are my closest friend.

Stay well and keep writing

I know what it means to have friends. I have two great friends that would do anything for me. I would do anything for them. We've been friends since high school

Yes it is wonderful to have someone you can count a friend Lily, thank you for a wonderful reminder on what a friend can be. I do not have anyone I can say is a true friend. You are fortunate

Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 8/3/2012
Whatever it was that occasioned this poem to resurface I hope its fresh "look over" has been beneficial, Carol. We all need to count our friends from time to time, not as a headcount per se, but as positive thoughts which capture the whole of yourself and your three friends. You are fortunate having three, many haven't even that number to call true friends.
