Friends ❤️

Family unconnected by blood, and yet close-knit
Real friends stay close to us
In every sickness and health, they will be there
Every joy and sorrow seems better with them
No matter what life throws at us,
Darkness or light, they don't care,
So long as you go through it together!

A true friend is precious and dependable,
Rare, sincere and loyal to a fault
Even one such friend is worth a million people!

Always, you can count on them!

True friendship never dies,
Rather it grows stronger and powerful
Even though miles may separate you
All that distance is just physical
Separation is something our hearts don't know!
Ugly or pretty moments - friends will always stay.
Remember, friends are a treasure that
Everybody is not lucky enough to have.

Did you find the not-so-hidden message? Friends are a treasure worth having. Life would be extremely dull without them. I dedicate this poem to all my friends across the globe. Thank you for making my life a lot better!

This is also my first acrostic poem!

  1. This is a lovely tribute to friendship–you have a generous heart ❤ And it’s interesting–because I didn’t know anything about a competition, or what you would write–my Glad Games (Gratitude) post (tomorrow, hopefully) will feature the kind of true friendship you’ve written about 🙂 ❤ Good job!!

    1. Thank you so much, Rhen. I got to know about this competition through the posts of a few bloggers that I follow. I’m glad that you were inspired by this post. Thank you so much for you kind words. ♥️🤗


  2. Woohoo! An Acrostic Poem, and that too such a creative one. Reading your thoughts on friendship literally brought tears to my eyes. This is seriously beautiful, Shweta. Loved ittt to the core. 😿♥️

  3. Such a lovely description of friends and about friendship. Count your life in terms of friends you have is what I always think about all the passing years on Earth.

    1. Oh yes. That’s a beautiful thought, Anagha! Counting your life in terms of the friends that you have acquired. I love it! Thank you so much for reading and for sharing your thoughts ❤️🤗


  4. Yes, friends are all of that. And I have learned that real friends will face you and tell you the truth even if you may be furious with them. 🙂
    Now you should turn this around and write the corollary:
    “If I am a real friend, I will stay close to you.
    In every health and sickness I will be there for you”
    When we expect this love and loyalty from our friends, we are willing to give the same in return.

    1. Exactly. It’s a give and take relationship. I wanted to write so much more. But there was only so much I could write so that it’ll be an acrostic poem. I’m going to organise all of my other thoughts into another poem. 😁 Thank you, Christine

    I wasn’t aware of acrostic poem. Thanks for detailing that! ☺
    I have something similar in mind for quite long. I hope to give it a form soon.

    1. This was my first try when it comes to acrostic poetry. I’ve seen people do it so beautifully. I wasn’t sure that I could pull it off. Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m looking forward to reading that post 😊

      1. You’ve beautifully pulled it off. ☺

        And, my post will definitely take long time to get published. I just have an idea, haven’t even drafted it!
