~*WHAT A FRIEND SHOULD BE*~
A Friend Should Be Radical...
They should love you when you're unlovable,
Hug you when you're unhuggable,
And bear you when you're unbearable.
A Friend should be Fanatical...
They should cheer when the whole world boos,
Dance when you get good news,
And cry when you cry too.
But most of all, a Friend should be
They should multiply the joy, Divide the sorrow,
Subtract the past, And add to tomorrow,
Calculate the need deep in your heart,
And always be bigger than the sum of all their parts.
~*A FRIEND FOREVER*~
Sometimes in life,
you find a special friend;
Someone who changes your life
just by being part of it.
Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop;
Someone who makes you believe
that there really is good in the world.
Someone who convinces you
that there really is an unlocked door
just waiting for you to open it.
This is Forever Friendship.
When you're down,
and the world seems dark and empty,
Your forever friend lifts you up in spirit
and makes that dark and empty world
suddenly seem bright and full.
Your forever friend gets you through
the hard times, the sad times,
and the confused times.
If you turn and walk away,
your forever friend follows.
If you lose your way,
your forever friend guides you
and cheers you on.
Your forever friend holds your hand
and tells you that
everything is going to be okay.
And if you find such a friend,
you feel happy and complete,
because you need not worry.
You have a forever friend for life,
and forever has no end.
"A part of you has grown in me,
together forever we shall be,
maybe in distance,
but not in heart"

I had some free time, so what did I do?
I checked the computer to see if I'd heard from you.
I used to walk out to a box to retrieve mail
But I'd rather get it instantly than wait on the snail...
Checking my email is always fun
I usually get a joke or greeting from someone.
I feel so blessed because on the other end
I know I've connected with a friend.
When I've had a hard day and need to share
Here I can find a friend who will listen and care.
And to this friend I hope I've let them know
That I am always there for them also.
Isn't it a strange kind of bond we form?
It isn't exactly like the "norm"
But where is it written, face to face we have to be
For you to be a very good friend to me?
That little joke, or note,
or even just a simple "Hi"
Could be like a ray of sunshine
lighting up the sky.
So my online pals, this is dedicated to you
For all the smiles you have made anew.
May our friendship continue to grow
and the warmth we feel continue to flow.
Always remember this....
A smile is such an easy thing
To pass along the way,
Like a ray of summer sunshine
On a somewhat gloomy day.
So pass one on to those you meet
Then watch that person's face...
And feel the warmth as it's returned
It's called a "smile embrace."
