Life is long... It’s all our own; but when we are with friends, ‘estranged’ will be a word never to be heard. Time is the number of moments we find, and it fills our lives with joy and happiness. But when we part from friends, time will no longer seem what it used to be. We never know what the future has in store, yet the thoughts of friendship and the bonds we share will bring us much needed solace. They say time heals; nevertheless the moment of estrangement will be hard to heal.
The shadows of life will grow longer
Some days will be happy, some sad,
Yet the fiendship you’ve made will grow stronger
As you think of the good times you’ve had.
A sincere friend is a precious possession,
Whose value increases with years;
Suffering may come to assail you...
Empathetic friends can allay all of your fears.
The days that are gone will leave memories,
And memories are precious to keep;
They bring solace to life like pleasant melodies
That charm you and lull you to sleep.
Our days gather speed in their passing
With multiplied ills that attend...
Yet, you’ll weather safely each hurdle
When you feel the embrace of a loyal friend.
