Some friendships provide comfort,
A cup of tea, A slice of cake,
Words to soothe and warm you,
When life seems hard to take.
Some friendships foster adventure,
Countries and cities to explore,
Wild nights that last forever,
Laughter and movement on the dancefloor.
Some friendships carry memories,
And take you back in time,
To childhood games and family traditions,
Storybooks and rhymes.
Some friendships form on the battlefield,
Through trust and solidarity,
United by our inner scars,
That no one else can see.
Some friendships deliver honesty,
With the brutal force you need,
To stop in your tracks and question,
‘Is there advice that I should heed?’
Some friendships are enduring,
Some friendships have come and gone,
But each remains etched upon the map,
Of the journey we are on.
