Peter Imini

Friendship, friendship.

Everyone has one, and even more.

But not all do enjoy,

Not all benefit.

Friendship is a mutual pact.

I gain, you gain. I give, you give.

Tis not complete

when only one party gives or gains.

Be not the parasite, the other, a host.

Give as you receive;

Lest they be grieved,A

nd there appear a chasm that even time can’t heal.

    I've lost friends as they didn't understand this pact like I do. Your poem is a perfect image of friendship. Great write Peter. 👍
