FRIENDSHIP DEFINITION: Friendship is a relationship of mutual affection between people. It is a stronger form of interpersonal bond than an association.
To me, the dictionary definition you just read does not truly describe a friend ...here is my definition of what a genuine friend really is...
A friend is someone that has your back even in those times you are in the wrong... no, I don't mean someone who will give you a pass and not try to set you straight when you are going down the wrong path, but someone that will try to help you while understanding your weaknesses and will still, and always, love you anyway.
I wrote this poem for this post about what a true friend is just for you, my friends, because I know there have been days in your life where you have felt this way as well and then someone that loves you has been there especially for you...
In my hardest days of pain, I gaze outside my windowpane
Through darkness and the rain I see, someone who's been a friend to me.
As they enter near my space, they see the sorrow on my face,
They run to me with warm embrace, to help me through life's daunting pace
Why, I ask, do you care for me, they answer now most subtly
You cared for me when I was down, how can I leave you with a frown
You are a friend I shall not fail, nor leave you here alone and pale
I love you with my deepest heart, you are a friend I will never part
Another true friend poem just for you...
"Since it has been my lot to find, at every parting of the road,
the helping hand of comrade kind to help me with my heavy load,
And thou I have no gold to give and love alone must make amends,
I pray the Lord, that while I live -- God, make me worthy of my friends"
A True Friends motto is always ..."I'll Be There For You!" ...Listen...
John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
I hope you will be my friend and I might be worthy to be yours ...I LOVE YOU!
