Friendship

A little poem dedicated to the many wonderful friendships which are formed through blogging and just to let you know, I am thinking of you.


When good friends walk beside us,
On the trails that we must keep,
Our burdens seem less heavy,
And the hills are not so steep,
The weary miles pass swiftly,
Taken in joyous stride,
And all the world seems brighter,
When friends walk by our side.

Wishing you all a marvellous week ahead!

  1. Thank you for sharing. You find some really heartfelt poetry. I really like this one and think this is so true. I think I would have given up a long time ago if not for the friends I've made through this hobby who keep me inspired and encourage me to try new things!

    1. Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog Alasse. Most come from my little Friendship books by Francis Gay. I have had them for years, the first of which was given to me by a friend on my wedding day.

  2. This poem is beautiful :-). It is true, even if we don't know each other personally, or know how we look like or how old we are, we bond through the blogs :-). I sometimes see something, and think: oh ... X or Y would like this! Or, how would X or Y be? Thank you for sharing this, and I wish you also a wonderful and happy week! Big hugs :-)

    1. Thank you Linda. I agree, age is not a barrier here, nor race or colour and I think it's wonderful that we can all come together and share our thoughts and ideas about our hobby. I think the friendships formed here are very special.
