About the Poem

This poem was written when one of my best friends passed away in a car wreck a few years ago. I never did know how much I loved and treasured her friendship until she was gone.

My Treasures

I find things I treasure the most
Are friends I made in life,
Those precious few who on the way
Shared all my joys and strife.

Their kindly words and helping hands
When troubles had set in
Renewed my strength and gave me hope
As faith was wearing thin.

They also knew the brighter side
Of picnics when it rained;
And soaking wet, we journeyed home,
A closer friendship gained.

At times we would just sit and talk,
Our secret whims to share.
We spoke of all our hopes and plans,
Unburdened all our cares,

Yes, these friends are treasured people
And treasured memories to;
Like lamplight in the waning day,
They keep my footsteps true.
