At the heart of all relationships
Is a special connection
Of souls and minds called friendship.
Between two who may be very different
Or two who share much in common.
Their lives become interwoven as time passes.
As they explore new avenues...
Share their hopes, dreams, desires...
The bond gets stronger and the trust greater.
And as they open up to one another,
Become more vulnerable,
A special love develops and grows.
It is a love that has many sides...
Honesty, caring, laughter
It is rewarding and fulfilling.
It is a love that transcends all...
Disagreements, sorrow, despair.
It is a love that gives strength.
For most people, there are friends,
Those whose company is enjoyed....
But very few true friendships.
