how to keep a friend? (a poem)


along the way there’s someone

who will lights a fire in you

brings you laughter

or wipe the tears in your eyes

and you wonder why

at times they don’t stay for long

while others remain as your cherished friend

others may come and go

so to keep them, let loose!

allow them to explore and wonder around

let them stay a little while and leave

give them a choice

enjoy you, experience you

at your worst and at your best!

but never hold them tightly

in the midst of your fist

let them breathe, or fly, or grow

for that is how to keep a friend

                                    – Jennifer

John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.”
