~~Your Kind of Friendship ~~

It takes more than caring
To be a real friend;
The nature of friendship;
Requires a blend
Of warmest compassion
And love deep and true


To reach and to comfort
The way that you do.
Because I can see
That your kind of friendship
Is priceless to me.
There is a huge, growing tribe in the world;
It’s name is “They”
with members in your life and mine.

The thing about its members is. . . .

“They” don’t always know what you feel, or think.
“They” don’t always know how you really feel about them –
where “
they” stand in your life.
“They” do not know you care for them -
if
“they” haven’t been told, or shown.

And those others. . . .
When
"they" haven’t see you or heard from you - - - -
How are
“they” to know “they” are still important in your life?
Just like you,
“they” are not mind readers;
“they” need to hear or see.

So, to make it clear to all the
“theys” who read this post. . . . .
For asking folks to pass this on
there is no need,
They’ll do that on their own accord.

Nor need they ever be requested
to the sender a friendship post return.

Folks already know who's lists they’re on,
and those on which they’re not.

For
friendship one should never need to beg;
for
acknowledgement a friend
so desperate never needs to feel.
I
may
not
be
the
most
important
person
in
your
LiFE

I

Just
hope
that
when
you
hear
my
name
you
smile
&
say

DATS MY friend!
It’s amazing when strangers become friends,
But it’s sad when friends become strangers.

I met you as a stranger.
Now I have you as a friend.

I hope we meet in our next walk of life
        where friendship never ends.
