The Gift of a Friend

The Gift of a Friend

A Poem by Rose
"

This is Gail's tribute to Ruth

"

‘A priceless gift is a generous friend


A precious gem to mine


It’s rarer than the Ruby red, or any ore you’ll find


Not the Green Moghul, nor the Kuh-i-noor; its brilliance can outshine


It’s far above all moneyed costs; beyond the price of kings



A loyal friend is the truest kind


A gift without ‘compeer’


A friend in need when you’ve lost it all


Is worth her weight in gold.


A friend with whom to brave life’s storms


Is the truest gift indeed



This beautiful gift of a loving friend


Is a gift that moves the heart


To spread beyond its beating walls, a love that’s shared within


It strums the chords and harmonies, of melodies I hear you sing


It thrills my heart to hear you sing:‘My friend; my love-yours too.’


Yes, you’re truly a loyal and priceless friend, a precious gem to keep


And so with a grateful heart I accept; this gift from you to me.’

Kind of smarmy I know , but that's what you get from a good friend at a birthday party.
