Christian Friendship Poem

By

"Tribute to Friendship" is a Christian friendship poem expressing the priceless treasure and profound love shared by genuine godly friends.

Tribute to Friendship

I love you not only for what you are,
But for what I am when I am with you;
I love you not only for what you have made of yourself,
But for what you are making of me;

I love you not for closing your ears to the discords in me,
But for adding to the music in me by worshipful listening;
You have done it without a touch, without a word, without a sign.
You have done it just by being yourself.

Perhaps that is what being a friend means, after all.
