The Pact Of Friendship- A Poem

Updated on November 7, 2012
Friendship takes total trust in each other.
Friendship takes total trust in each other. | Source

The Gospel of John, in chapter 3, the 16th verse states:

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that who ever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

That is the truest most unconditional form of friendship that is Eternally found. Choosing to believe in the Son Of God, Christ Jesus brings Life!

I choose to be your friend.

A friend is an individual

Who cares and who shares

Of oneself without losing oneself,

To share of oneself unconditionally.

As your true friend

I can only expect that

I will be received

Unconditionally as well.

If you are my friend,

I can only hope that we

Can look out for each other's

Well- being.

Paying it Forward

Reaps heavenly reward.

There is great satisfaction

From what friends can give

Each other,

Only to be measured by

The ability to love

The Love that God

Intended to be.

      Thank you so much for all your comments. Finding a true friend is a challenge. Most people like me only want to be accepted for who they are and to have some one they can trust. So to give an example of a true friend I could think of was our Lord Jesus Christ.
