Friendship poems

  1. Are you tired of all those sissy, mushy "friendship" poems that always sound good but never actually come close to reality? Well, here is a series of promises that really speaks to true friendship!

    1. When you are sad, ...I will get you drunk and help you plot revenge against the sorry bastard who made you sad.

    2. When you are blue, ....I'll try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

    3. When you smile, ...I'll know you finally got laid.

    4. When you are scared, ... I will rag you about it every chance I get.

    5. When you are worried, ...I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be and to quit whining.

    6. When you are confused, ...I will use little words to explain.

    7. When you are sick, ...stay away from me until you're well again. I don't want whatever you have.

    8. When you fall, ...I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.

    This is my oath,....I pledge 'til the end. Why you may ask? Because you are my friend!
    Remember: A friend will help you move. A good friend will help you move a body. Let me know if I ever need to bring a shovel.

    HERE are two of my favorite "FRIENDSHIP POEMS":

    It is titled: FRIENDSHIP

    Oh, the comfort -- the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person,
    Having neither to weigh thoughts,
    Nor measure words -- but pouring them
    All right out -- just as they are --
    Chaff and grain together --
    Certain that a faithful hand will
    Take and sift them --
    Keep what is worth keeping --
    And with the breath of kindness
    Blow the rest away.

    This too is titled: FRIENDSHIP

    Dear friend, I pray thee, if thou wouldst be proving
    Thy strong regard for me,
    Make me no vows. Lip service is not loving;
    Let Thy faith speak for thee.

    Swear not to me that nothing can divide us --
    So little such oaths mean.
    But when distrust and envy creep beside us,
    Let them not come between.

    Say not to me the depths of thy devotion
    Are deeper than the sea;
    But watch, lest doubt or some unkind emotion
    Embitter them for thee.

    Vow not to love me ever and forever,
    Words are such idle things;
    But when we differ in opinions, never
    Hurt me by little stings.

    I'm sick of words; they are so lightly spoken,
    And spoken, are but air.
    I'd rather feel thy trust in me unbroken
    Than list thy words so fair.

    If all the little proofs of trust are heeded,
    If thou art always kind,
    No sacrifice, no promise will be needed
    To satisfy my mind.
