Friendship Poem


Proverbs 17:17 ~ “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”


A God-given gift

You are to me,

A sister of the heart,

A friend for eternity,


A gem I treasure,

A jewel shining bright,

A ray of sunshine,

A star in the night,


All are you to me,

All this and more;

I cherish your friendship

So sweet and pure.


Laughter we share,

Endless smiles,

Hardship cannot separate

Nor the many miles.


For connected we are

By the heart always;

Sisters in Spirit

For all of our days.


Praise Lord Jesus

For this connection we share;

Only He could create

This friendship beyond compare.


For He Himself is love,

He is our Best Friend;

His love for us is unceasing,

Without limit, without end.


So I thank you, dear sister,

From my heart of hearts,

And I praise Jesus

From Whom all love starts.


Together forever

We will always be;

You are my friend, my sister,

For all eternity.


A gem I treasure,

A jewel shining bright,

A ray of sunshine,

A star in the night,


You are my friend,

You shine with Jesus’ love;

Yes, you are a gift

From Heaven above.
