True friends are soul-companions
having survived changing circumstance
and the challenge of disagreement.
Minds are searched and hearts are tried,
yet still found worthy of the intimacy
of unguarded thoughts expressed
with the ease of soap on skin…
True friends inspire each other
to be and do their best in the art
of living wiser, healthier lives.
True friends are rewards and medals and prizes…
True friends are reflecting mirrors,
and unique snowflakes,
and the beauty of terrain yet to be discovered…
