Friendship . . . is you. is love. is shared. is forgiving. is understanding. is shared secrets. is shared laughter. can be angry at times. is dependable and true. is meant to be savored like fine wine. is not perfect, much like we are not perfect. is meant to be gulped like lemonade on a hot summer day. is always there, through times of trial, happy times and hard times. just happens, but once discovered, needs to be tended like a beautiful garden. is a road to be traveled slowly, remembering the sights and sounds. is strength when you are too weak to notice its there. reaches into your heart and grabs a firm hold. is a refreshing rain on a hot day. is relaxed and comfortable. is a shoulder to lean on. is an ear to whine to. gets better with age. is shared tears. is shared joy. is shared. is love. is you.
