Famous Friendship Poems

Most friendships only last for a particular phase of our lives. When that developmental period is over, the friendship may dissolve.

This kind of a friendship also takes a certain flexibility. People change throughout their lifetimes and they must continue to search for commonalities between themselves if they expect their friendship to endure.
