Friends are like jewels, precious and rare,
Loved and respected and treated with care.
Friends reveal facts in good times and strife,
Compassion, strength, humour, fashioned from life.
Friends sparkle like diamonds, or quietly glow,
Their love and companionship on us bestow.
Friendship’s a jewel of priceless design,
Strong as a rock and constant as time.
(Kathryn L Garrod)
