BC: Promise As you sit in silence, Wondering why I'll be your shoulder to cry on Until your tears run dry. When you've been hurt, And can't believe what they've done If you need someone to talk to I'll be the one. If a close friend hurts you, And you don't understand Remember I'm here, I'll lend a helping hand. Burdens are lighter when carried by two, And I just want you to know I'm here for you.

4: "Yeah, well, I've got a dream too, But it's about singing and dancing and making people happy. The kind that gets better the more people you share it with. And, well, I've found a bunch of friends who have the same dream. And it kind of makes us like family." -Kermit the frog
5: "But we didn't know that. Not at first. But we know now. We know now." -True Believer by Virginia Wolff
6: just for a ride some will be serene and composed, only here to soak up the sunshine, breathe in the wild air. the one to put the roof down. another is not breathing the air, but creates it. does not indubitably open the bottle, but is always the one to shake it. a few are here to observe and enjoy. always expressive, yet invariably quiet. silence of their company peaceful, never perilous. tranquility radiating from their presence. and then there is a true friend who will not judge by these things there for you always along just for the ride.

One minute. A tenth of a second of a minute. If you'd done something else than you actually did." -LaVaughn from True Believer
11: You're my Best Friend, More like a Sister By Kathy Acker Through thick and thin no matter what Even when you have a broken heart And everything seems to hit like a dart, I'm here. When you cry and I wipe your tears When you hug me and you lose your fears When people bully you and you can hear their jeers, I'll be there. Even when the world shuts you out And even when your depressed and pout If you get hurt and you shut my shouts I'll love you anyways. Through everything life can throw We both just seem to know We share something special with our lifelong friendship show We're Best Friends, sisters. We've got love, We've got hope I'll always love you like a sister Even if you just mope. You’re my best friend It's been many long years of being Best Friends And we're still stronger than ever And even when we're broken, Together we both mend.
12: "I go to sleep that night looking up at the birds' nest, pretending that other life I don't have." -LaVaughn from True Believer
13: I Found You By Kari Lauer Somehow in this great big world I found my way to you My friend across the many lines my heart, my soul, that's who. You try to make me smile with the mail you send my way. You never fail to drop a line each and every day. Whenever I have hurried home with something, I must share, I find it just so comforting that you are always there. Encouragement you give me and a friendship that is true. I'm glad my soul while reaching out found someone like you...
14: A Friend Is Like A Flower... By Claudia Emerson A friend is like a flower -- a rose to be exact, Or maybe like a brand new gate --that never comes unlatched A friend is like an owl, both beautiful and wise Or perhaps a friend is like a ghost, whose spirit never dies. A friend is like those blades of grass -- you can never mow, standing straight, tall, and proud -- in a perfect little row A friend is like a heart that goes --strong until the end. Where would we be in this world -- if we didn't have a friend.
17: "Never explain--your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway." -Elbert Hubbard (1856 - 1915)
