What Friendship Means

© Tracie Labauve
Friendship means being there just to be there.
Friendship means listening and not asking questions.
Friendship means lending your shoulder for someone to cry on.
Friendship means being comfortable around each other in silence.
Friendship means being able to tell each other anything and understanding without questions.
Friendship means being honest wit each other no matter what the cost.
Friendship means staying up all night and talking about nothing.
Friendship means being able to say I love you!
Friendship means forgiving each other no matter what you have done.
Friendship means learning from each others mistakes.
Friendship means me & you.
This is the way I look at you, my friend, and I love you!!

  • What a true friend means .

    A true friend is there. When she isn't near. Can feel all your fear. Knows when you're in your lowest time of need without saying a word just knows it. Not afraid to help when you can't do it at all. Give a hand without wanting a thing. Understanding you at your weirdest and never asking why. To believe in you no matter when you don't. Knowing that you'll do the right thing when you're in the wrong. Make a stand with you not matter what cost is. To find the good in you when everyone said the bad. Not ashamed of you. No matter where you go you just know you're OK even facing danger. To forgive the unforgiven. To say I love you and mean it. Never leave your side.. FRIENDS ASK YOURSELF ARE YOU?????
