The ABC's of Friendship
A Friend.... Accepts you as you are Believes in "you" Calls you just to say "HI" Doesn't give up on you Envisions the whole of you (even the unfinished parts) Forgives your mistakes Gives unconditionally Helps you Invites you over Just because Keeps you close at heart Loves you for who you are Makes a difference in your life Never Judges Offers support Picks you up Quiets your fears Raises your spirits Says nice things about you Tells you the truth when you need to hear it Understands you Values you Walks beside you Xxoxoxoxxxoooxxoxo Yells when you won't listen and Zaps you back to reality May we always be "good buddies" May we always be good friends and may our friendship be the kind that never ends.....................
Sonnets from the Portuguese
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
originally published in 1850
SONNET XLIII How do I love thee ? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight For the ends of Being and ideal Grace. I love thee to the level of everyday's Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life !--and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.
