Friends

Growing up we make friends all around

Some are close and some you just know

They come in all shapes and sizes

For different reasons at different times

We love the time we spend with them

Hoping it will never end

As we grow our friends often change

What we enjoy and what we do affects what we do

Friends from school

Friends from the neighborhood

Friends from sports, church or so much more

As we go into adulthood our friendships change again

Marriages, children and changes to our lives

Now they come from where we work

Where we live and from who our kids know

The closeness we had when we were kids

Replaced by that feeling of unknown

Hoping for that tightness we had when we were young

Someone to laugh with and tell our secrets to

Sometimes we get lucky and find such a friend

We hope that they will be around through thick and thin

A friend like that is hard to find indeed
