Friendship – 40th Word in the “Good Words" Project

Updated on May 18, 2016

Friendship is

40th Good Word in Jo Goldsmith’s Good Words Project, words Jo gives us weekly to live by. This is Jo’s calling to promote and bring recognition to unknown writers/authors/poets to become the best we can be.

I gave Jo my word that I would write a poem for every good word and here we are up to the 40th "Good Word".



Friendship is. . . .

Friendship is the camaraderie

Which is the spirit of good-fellowship

A bond with people who became our friends

Friends we have gathered along life’s highways


Friendship is having someone

To share the joy and laughter

Sharing secrets and making plans

Promises forever you will be friends


Trudy

Friendship it is the rapport

Developed between two people

Caring and sharing

Everything of every sort


Friendship is knowing and understanding

Unspoken thoughts

And sharing secrets you have never told

Sharing fun, and laughing at silly things

Together when the work day is done


My friend Cee

Friendship means sharing each other’s thoughts and Ideas

Or their deepest, darkest, thought

And someone who will share theirs with you

And neither will speak against the other


Friendship is . . .

Someone who will stand by you

And tell you what you need to hear

Or what is best for you

Even if you do not want them to


Maureen

My dear friend from 2006

Friendship is a strong alliance

Stronger when they stick together

Through all kinds of weather

Sometimes closer than a sister or a brother

That is what friends think of each other



If I could show you all my friends

I would not know where to begin

I do not have the space

To show each one's

Handsome or beautiful face

But, I have shown you just a few


Friendship is.....

Each one of my friends are a treasure

Having you be my friend

Has been, is and will always

Be my pleasure


Friendship - Soul-Mates - I married mine

Friendship is?.....

      John 15:13 -- Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Your friends are the people who are there for you when you need them. Words matter, but deeds matter more. Who is there for you when the chips are down? Value those people because they are your true friends . . .

      Well said. Voted up, BAUI, and shared.

      Will we have snow in the wee hours? I hope not. The weather didn't used to have much affect on me, but things have changed and now it seems to make a huge difference. So glad you weren't hurting today like I would have expected. Glad you didn't damage your hip either. Take care and stay in where it's warm -- both of you! Blessings and hugs for you both, dear friend.

      This is so beautiful Shyron! Having good friends with which to share life is a blessing indeed. I talked on the phone just yesterday with one of mine. We went to junior high and high school together and have not seen each other in many years but the distance between us does not dim our memories or friendship. Up and beautiful votes!

      Hi Shyron, this is my fifth attempt to post the link to my hub on friendship here (IPad problems). It still won't let my post the link but the title is called "Thoughts of Friendship" and I put the link in a comment on my other hub "My Friend the Oak". I will add a link to this hub as well.

      Jodah, thank you for the comment and the links. I linked your hub to this one, yours was great. "My Friends the Oak" is one of my favorite hubs of yours, it holds special meaning. My hubby asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told him I wanted a Live Oak outside our bedroom window (I was thinking more along the lines of six foot high, maybe one and half inch trunk). As it turned out he was in the hospital and the tree was delivered by the tree farm the same day, I rushed to the hospital and rushed home and began digging the hole for the 15 foot high, six inch trunk, half was my daughter in-law showed up and helped me finish the hole and just as we finished the tree farm delivered my beautiful birthday tree and we planted it.

      Shyron,

      First of all, thank you for being a friend to me by reading my hubs and sharing your lovely comments. I have always been the kind of person who tried really hard to be kind to everyone, and I am sure falling short. My outside self is just friendly by nature, but my inside self is the ultimate introvert. That is why when I make a real friend it is such a wonderful feeling to finally have someone I feel that I can trust enough to allow them into my inner circled self. And how I cherish those folks who have made their way there: Frances, Barbara and Bev are friends that have been with me for over 20 years and I love them dearly.

      I love this hub and your beautiful poetry.

      Blessings,

      Kim

      Kim,

      Thank you for the comments, and compliments, I do appreciate you so very much.

      I too find it hard to really make close friends, but the ones I have mentioned here and others that I have not mentioned, which includes you and lots of other hubbers. I am so happy that my friend Au fait found HP and invited me to join.

      Blessings and Hugs dear Kim
