Some say friends are the family that God forgot to give us;
Some friends stick closer than family;
We are kind of stuck with our families;
But friends are ours to choose.
We first meet them as strangers;
Some pleasant; others not;
But some way somehow, here we are;
Like we’ve known each other since forever;
Some we got to know through other friends;
Others just crossed our paths as willed by fate;
And it feels so empty when they are not around;
As if they’ve always been in our lives.
Friends are like guardian angels;
Sent to protect us wherever we are;
To keep us warm and happy;
Friends are living proof of God’s omnipresence.
