Priced above rubies

Cherished above shining pearls

Treasured beyond Gold

Admired more than diamond stones

They are friends.

The impact of thunder fades away

The paths created by earthquakes would wither

Lands eroded by storms soon gain life

Houses pulled down by bulldozers, soon are re-constructed

But lost friends what can replace?

At-times when it seems like life has blown its worst

At-times when tears flow like rivers

At times when no one would ever understand

At times when living matters least

They are there.

They never get tired

They are never wearied

Their shoulders, though soaked in tears, never tired to receive more

Their ears, though bombarded with worries of a troubled friend, still receptive

They are real friends.

Take all the wealth away

Take all my possessions away

Take all that seems so tall and mighty

Take them all

But never take away the comfort of a true friend. Their memories would never go.

(Written to celebrate the value of real friends who have walked through my life)
