Budding New Friendships

This is a poem that i wrote for the amazing friends that i have made the past couple of months, i never thought i would really allow myself to make friends again because i have lost so many, but with time i am opening up and shedding down the walls around me to let them know me and see me as i am.. so i have wrote this poem to my wonderful new friends.. 🙂

New-made friendships, like new wine 

With age and time become stronger and refined
Pulling a new friend into 
your life is a form of balance. 
A friend is someone that gives you a smile when you have nothing to smile about
Sensitive, kind,loyal and understanding is what you always try to be
Appreciative, warm and precious like gold
When my spirits are damp
You are there to lift me up
A friend is like an owl,
both beautiful and wise 
I hope our friendship won’t tarnish or ever grow old 
I am grateful to have been blessed
With cherished friends like you..
