For My Friends
A friend is like a constant river flow,
A lover, more like a pond.
A friend is someone whom I know,
Of a lover I am fond.
To be a lover and a friend
Is well worth all the time.
To love someone until the end
Puts the friendship on the line.
To say I love you is very real,
Our friendship I do cherish.
And I hope and truly feel
That it shouldn’t perish.
I love you greater than love,
Love is transitory.
So let me say that being friends
Might end all allegory.
