‘Friendship’ is a bond that is built carefully and treasured fiercely. Friendship is to be treasured like a jewel. If jewels are lost they can be replicated. But a true friend cannot be cloned. It is a bond that you would not let go easily; you will defend it at all cost. It takes time to nurture a friendship. It is not created for the nonce. It is cultivated with much love and care over time. There is a great deal that goes into building and keeping a friendship. It is love and care that keep a friendship going. Where there is no love but only greed and selfishness there is no friendship at all.
In a real friendship that has matured over time, there are not even any expectations between two friends. You love your friend whatever may happen and you love not for any reason or to get anything in return from your friend. And this is the sentiment shared by your friend too. Such a friendship is a real friendship and it gives true joy and contentment. Even troubles and miseries that life may bring seem insignificant when you have such a friendship to bank on.
A friend in need is a friend indeed! A true friend will be one who will stay by your side at all times. A real friend stays by you through thick and thin. A true friend should be cherished and whose friendship should be safeguarded. Losing a true friend is like losing a treasure. And you may never recover the wealth you lose. A true friend is difficult to come by. So value the friendship of such a friend. Most of all, reciprocate the love your friend has for you. And give your friend a special place in your heart.
Between two friends there is nothing to hide. True friends can be absolutely frank with each other, ready to pour their heart out to the other. In a friendship between two close and dear friends, the love for each other is limitless and undying. And so one could share a relationship of true friendship with one’s parent or sibling or then one’s spouse. In fact, God is often one’s real friend. True friendship stands the test of time. When all else will desert, a true friend will still be around.
