When I ponder the things I've learned
The places I've been and the money I've earned
I realize the one thing that to me was the best
Much more important than all of the rest
Yes, pondering these things has certainly shown
that its the people I've met and the friends I've known
that made my life special and not because
they followed my rules or obeyed my laws
but because they were there and part of my life
They were there in the good times and in times of strife
Without friends we'd be lonely with no one to tell
of the things that have hurt us or the things we've done well
But here's something to remember that some may not see
The thing I've learned most of what friendship should be
It's that friends are just people who need someone around
to pick up their spirits and sometimes them, off the ground
Having a friend gives you the opportunity to make someone smile
and to be someone they can count on and talk to a while
Yes, being a friend has done more for me
Then any possession whether paid for or free
Having friends is a blessing, to receive friendship, fine
But being a friend is more important
To give friendship, divine
So what's been most important, to this I'll gladly boast
That I gave my friends friendship, That's what's meant the most

Thank you for this poem, Wayne, makes me as well ponder the things that are important. Here in litdotorg I made a lot of friends, five of them I correspond via emails and two through the complicated channels of snailmail. I've grown to love all of them and this time that I barely have the time using the computer and accessing lit, I just can't help but miss them.

This poem of yours warmed my heart, it also makes me think of the friends I have in the non-cyberworld.
