A Friend Is Forever: Precious Poems That Celebrate the Beauty of Friendship
Fawcett Books, 1998 - Poetry - 121 pages
Thrice is sweet music sweet when every word
And lovely tone by kindred hearts are heard;
So when I hear true music, Heaven send,
To share that heavenly joy, one dear, dear friend!
--From "Music and Friendship"
by Richard Watson Gilder
Lovers and others may come and go in our lives but a friend is forever. This beautiful bouquet to friendship reminds us how much the everyday companionship of friends means to us, and how lost we would be without it. Our burdens are lightened by the kindness of friends, for even in life's roughest patches, the bonds of true friendship hold fast.
This collection of insightful and inspiring poems, from simple loving hearts as well as literary masters, proves that while love may make the world go 'round, it's friendship that holds it together. A Friend Is Forever makes us proud to have a friend, and to be one.
