Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary defines friends as:
friends - one attached to another by affection or esteem.
Well that is fine and dandy, but I have a different defination of FRIENDS.
Friends - are special people.
Our friends can be as diverse and infinite as the adjectives we choose, Close friend, Best friend, Childhood friend, Intimate friend, Trusted friend, Beloved friend. Our friends, in a very real sense, reflect the choices we make in life.
I know that I have made bad choices in friends over the years and then I have made good choices. The bad choices I, in a way, can't regret because if I had not made those choices then I would have never know what a true and trusted friend is.
In our short lived life, we very seldom have "true" friends. The ones that we do have we should cherish with every waking moment.
I found two poems that I would like to share with you today.
by: Jodi Kenyon
A friend is someone true and for real,
A friend is someone who means a great deal.
A friend won't hurt you,
A friend won't lie,
A friend will never permanantly say good-bye.
A friend is there through the good times and bad,
A friend is there to cheer you up when your sad.
A friend is always there with a shoulder to cry on,
A friend is always there that you can rely on.
So, friend if you ever need someone honest and true,
Just remember ill always be here for you .
by: Lindsey Shirocky

Friends are there until the end,
They're always themselves, no pretend.
They're not afraid to be seen with you,
They will never betray you.
Friends never tell secrets they promise to keep,
they make you feel good about yourself in times of weep.
They come and cheer for you at your games,
In a friend there is no shame.
Friends are there to listen when you're depressed,
They are the people you should know best.
Friends are like presents you open again and again,
Always are with you through thick and thin.
Remember that it's not the QUANTITY of friends that you have. If you have just one friend, and that friend is a "true" friend then that is all that you need.
Thank you for reading my attempt at writing again today. Hopefully with time, I will become a better writer.
