In Difficult Times We Have Friendship

Author:

I May Never Know What You Are Going Through

Every day we see a new date on the calendar

There are so many good times

I wish they could stay forever

The sad times come and we do our best

To make them better

Even if we are miles apart

We are two beating hearts

Life gives us so many challenges that we face

So many people think life is a race to the finish

I am not the fastest or the brightest

So I move at my own pace

Trying to squish as much joy in every moment

As I possibly can

I believe through our deepest and kindest thoughts

We can connect

Helping others when they are stressed

There are no words that can change the way things are

If we see a smile or a laugh

Then there is hope

That we can make the most

That not just our lives can change

Life for everyone can become better

In some small way

Today will lead to tomorrow

The sun will shine again

We will not only find the courage

To continue to help those in need

So with prayers and support

You have a friend

Chrish Canosa Remember your parents don't have to be your friend. They will work hard to take care of you and provide the foundation of a good life. Parents want their children to better than them so they may have a better life. They make so many sacrifices nobody else would. It is always nice to thank them for all the things they have done. Most children forget or don't realize it until it is too late. Thank you for reading and sharing. I hope your day was filled with joy.

" When you become parent you will understand "

Brenda Arledge Every day I try to do something that will make me a better person and at the same time I try to help someone else. This way I can look back over the years and see many lovely times. I never know what direction I will go. Even though I go to work and come home and enjoy my family life. There are so many things all over the world we have no control over. If I can make our little circle of family and friends safe and happy then we can continue to enjoy fun times and make new ones . Thank you so much for reading and sharing time. Have a good night.

Dream on,

You are correct. In some small way we help others even if through a smile or text.

Nice one.

Ankita B There is nothing more exciting than to see a friend happy. Their laugh, their smile. It is something you can not make happen. It is just a feeling. You share and you know you both care. Thank you for reading and being a friend. Have a sweet and aswesome day.

Lorna Lamon I don't remember who my first friend was and I can't remember the last friend I made. What I do know is friends make me happy when I am in my darkest moments. I welcome all friends and hopefully, they will someday feel the same way. Thank you for reading and sharing so many of my poems. I am glad you liked my thoughts. Have a beautiful afternoon. My wife wants to clean our house on this wonderful sunny day. I would rather go outside and play. Sometimes we can't do what we want as adults. It was so nice when I was just a kid growing up. I didn't have to worry about bills and big problems. Just go to school and learn so someday I may be helpful to society instead of a burden to the world. That was many years ago. It's funny how our mind flashback in time. Enjoy a good afternoon. At least I have the windows open and the doors too.

Chrish Canosa Friends don't have to be strict and don't see you every day. They do care in many different ways. They want the best for you just like your parents do a combination of both will help compliment each other. I would never want to go against your parents even if you think they are wrong. They have learned through many years what someone else might not know. So they have their reasons. Like it or not when we become parents we may realize the responsibilities they have and the pressure of teaching their loved ones right from wrong. My parents use to say we brought you into this world we can take you out. I think they were only joking but I was never quite sure. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. You made my day a whole lot nicer.

Indeed we all need a helping hands of a friend. A great message of this poem as always. Always always thank you for sharing and holding our hands to get through it helps a lot

Our parents can't always sermon us in such way so thank you!

(Their always serious, like an observing detective)

Few things have such an impact on happiness, enjoyment and the fun of life as the friendships we have. I loved this poem Dream On and in these difficult times these friendship's shelter us from life's sorrows.

Ankita B on October 22, 2020:

Beautiful poem about the importance of friendship in our lives. I loved this.

John Hansen When I publish poems all hours of the night you are there to comment. What a great gift of joy you give. I get instant gratification. Sometimes words don't always flow. I get stuck on a line or two. Other times I never finish my work. After it all and if I get to hit publish you show up. I feel you are right next door. I find it hard to believe you live in Australia. Thank God for technology. So believe it or not i feel like a kid leaving the dentist after getting a filling (writing what my heart searches to tell) I get a ring. Bringing back memories of years ago. it was all worth it. What we will do for the next ring.(lol)

John Hansen I owe everything to my family and friends who have helped me in difficult times. So if I can pass it on then I have learned something special. I love to ride the good times to the top and when the unfortunate times come we see them through waiting for more good times to return. Thank you so much for reading and sharing it means the world to me. Have one happy day.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on October 22, 2020:

Dream On, friendship is so important especially in the difficult times currently experienced by many. It is times like this that I am glad we have the Internet and things like Skype and FaceTime so that we can talk to loved ones who we are unable to visit, as well as our friends on the other side of the world. Thank you for always seeing the positive side of things and always trying to inspire and uplift others.
