Friends

In disagreements,
FRIENDS
do not harass one another,
to insist their personal stands
on any matter.
Rather,
they understand and brace
each other’s individuality,
and amidst all differences.

FRIENDS–
in giving,
they do not abuse one another,
to gain personally
out of each other’s weaknesses.
Rather,
they value and respect
each other more than any gains
and amidst all vulnerabilities.

FRIENDS–
in critical times,
they do not turn their backs from one another,
to spare themselves and save their faces
in darkest moments.
Rather,
they sit; they listen; they spare shoulders during
each other’s trying times
and amidst all challenges.

Because,
they are
FRIENDS.
They honor; they cherish; they comfort,
and bring out the best
in one another,
and
unconditionally.

Because
FRIENDSHIP
is the highest form of LOVE
on earth.


Lovers may come and go,
but friends stay.
Even if you wrinkle,
or you are six feet down under,
in the hearts
of your FRIENDS
you remain.

  1. I thought about your words, and I was trying to think of something to say…but you summed it up wonderfully! I am glad you are a friend and a sister to me…which is a priceless combination! I just ask people to be themselves, just be selfless, genuine and real! It is a blessing, that you are that way all the time! Have a beautiful day, and always begin with a smile, look out of your window and embrace the never ending love which God sends your way! Hugs and blessings always Aina!

  2. I’m driving dozen blogs. An error occurs routing to LHDDT (It is not in our editorial).
    Please, discard your links to this site.

    Reg.

    Je pilote une dizaine de blogs. Une erreur est survenue vers LHDDT qui n’est pas dans notre ligne éditoriale.
    SVP, retirez ce vos liens vers ce site.

    Merci.

  3. This is a very nice piece! Thank you for visiting and following my blog. I gladly return the favor and am now following you to read more of your wonderful work! 🙂

  4. This was nice, how many real friends do humans have? In my case not a lot, I may know a lot of people but wouldn´t call them friends fitting all the characteristics you wrote. So they few you have, which seems rare to have that relationship with a lot of people, we better cherish it.

    • Christy, in the short span of time that I have known you, all I have seen is the generous person and the passionate writer in you–very impressive! I wish you continued success and more blessings to pour. Thank you for everything, aloha!

  5. I can’t believe I haven’t read this page before, Aina. For me, certain friends were closer than family in many ways, and your words express why beautifully. The song was a nice accompaniment for my breakfast too.
