True friendship relieves, removes stress,

In the soul instigates freshness,

Brings comfort and elevates the spirit.

Invigorates physically to keep fit.

No need to meet regularly 

For true friendship to prosper daily,

It will stay the test of time eternally.

They are there like stars really.

You do not all the time each other see,

But they are there, radiating in glory,

Spreading the fragrance of love,

Like heavenly blessings from above,

Everyday struggles of life become bearable,

For friendship has the great power to enable

The soul to refresh and pick us up from trouble.
