Treasured Friendship

In trust and harmony

our friendship, you and me

Treasured times together

a fond-ship that lasts forever

Looking forward to those special times

we'd meet somewhere nice

when the weather is fine

We'd share our secrets, yours and mine

Yes, pleasant and happy times.

True Friendship

If you're feeling joyful or sometimes bleak

Your presence I would always seek

We lend each other special strengths

we're with each other for the length.

We seek to build each other up

in joyful loyalty and trust

We like to have those special times

where we share our secrets__ yours and mine

True friendship lasts forever.

Wise words with Friends

Be careful who you allow to shape your thinking

for the words of some will send your faith sinking.

Don't let their words affect your hope

sometimes they're not happy unless you cope.

Friendship is not meant for meeting one's needs

this would be kindness, yes indeed

if they would truly understand

an ear to hear and a helping hand

are meant for occasions, what celebration!

If they don't respect this then do not miss

a moment to tell them this truly offends.

Friendship is for happy times

caring yes but not all the time.

Lunchtime Acquaintance

We like to go for lunch together

Meeting with you is such a pleasure.

My times spent with you I do treasure

I hope that this friendship lasts forever!

Friendship Garden

In my Friendship Garden,

Grows a Flower

rare and true.

I look a little closer

and find that it is you.

To me it means all is well.

My sky is clear and blue,

and that is how it always is,

whenever I think of you.


May Our Friendship Last Forever

May our friendship last forever;

May I sail upon your sea.

May we go through life together;

May there always be a "we"

May I be your endless sky;

May you breathe my gentle air.

May you never wonder why

Each time you look for me, I'm there.

May we be for each a smile

Like the warm, life-giving sun;

Yet when we're in pain awhile,

May our suffering be one.

May we share our special days,

The happiness of one for two;

And if we must go separate ways,

Let my love remain with you.

Attributes in Friendship

You don't have to meet my every need

but we're there for each other when there's

a special need.

Joyful times we like to share

that should not have to be one that's rare.

Life's not perfect, this we know

in these times our kindness shows

We're there for each other

like sisters and brothers

You have my trust and loyalty

affections that were meant to be__

always constant but I am free

Seek for balance and liberty.

My friends from Kurdistan. We like to spend times together just like a family. We share our cuisine and lots of laughs. We share our photos and stories and care for each other.

My Prayer for You

I thought of you so much today

I went to God in prayer.

To ask Him to watch over you

and show you that I care.

My prayer for you was not for rewards

ones that you can touch or feel.

But true rewards for happiness

that are so very real.

Like love and understanding

in all the things you do.

For guidance when you need it most

to see your troubles through.

I asked Him for good health for you

so your future could be bright.

And faith to accept life's challenges

with courage to do what's right.

I gave thanks to Him for granting my prayer

to bring you peace and love.

May you feel the warmth in your life

with Gods blessings from above.

Friends are Life’s Gift of Love

If people like me did’nt know people like you

Life would lose it’s meaning and richness too…

For the friends that we make are life’s gift of love,

And I think friends are sent right from Heaven Above…..

And thinking of you somehow makes me feel

That God is Love and He’s very Real.

Helen Steiner Rice ©

Friends are God's way of taking care of us

A Person like You

The meaning of being special,

is found in a person like you.

A friend who is so thoughtful,

in everything they say and do.

A person who betters my life,

by being a part of it each day.

Someone who touches my heart,

in a special, and unique way.

A person who's always giving,

and willing to help all they can.

Who truly gives from their heart,

showing they care for who I am.

This friend I have found in you,

is as special as one could be.

And I am so blessed in my life,

that you've been a friend to me.


“When you ask God for a gift,

Be thankful if he sends,

Not diamonds, pearls or riches,

but the love of real true friends.”

Helen Steiner Rice

Valued Friendship

A precious bonding__ yours and mine

we meet together all the time

when the weather is rainy or fine.

Trust is the essence of our love

given to us from God above__

sent to us on wings of a dove

Faithfulness, trust and love.

Friendship is a two way street, you put in

some effort and they put in some effort and together, this keeps your friendship alive and flourishing. -- Sheree Hanihan

Wisdom in Friendships

We're not confidants all the time

The weather does not have to be always fine.

Occasional confidence when the need arises

We give each other special suprises.

That is a friendship that deserves our trust__

yes, a friendship that will truly last

the tests of time__

when everything does not work out sublime

Where pleasant acquaintance makes one refreshed......

On these qualities our friendships should rest.

Uplifting Friendships

when our spirits need a lift

A friend is someone we treasure

A friendship is someone who fills our lives

with beauty, joy and grace

and makes the whole world

we live in a better and happy place.

A Lasting Friendship

Joy is the keynote of our times

Refreshing Acquaintance

There was a lady I met called Ruth

we were pleased to make acquaintance

She listened to me like Jesus does

secrets to her from my heart I shared.

She brings out only the best in me

believes the best and my heart was blessed. Who would dream she works for a church (reception)

She showed me the interest of a long time friend__

her smile and her cheer are with me still.  

“I pray God’s blessings for you” True story

A Delightful Surprise

I have a new friend Sheree

To meet her was an experience

I saw her through Jesus eyes and mine

Moments with her are divine.

She has a special way with words

They linger in your ears when heard.

Her spirit is so sweet

quiet natured, a little shy

unassuming, a nice surprise.

To me she is a “precious gem".

I’m looking forward to knowing her more

To be with her is like pleasant shores

My young sister in Christ you are so nice__

our friendship shall be without end.

Janet Vargas © June 2012

Forever Friends

Sometimes in life you find a special friend

Someone who changes your life just by

being part of it

Someone who makes you laugh until

you can't stop

Someone who makes you believe that

there is really good in the world.

Someone who convinces you that there is a

locked door just waiting for you to open it.

This is forever friendship.


The Miracle Of Friendship

There is a miracle called Friendship

that dwells within the heart

and you don't know how it happens

or when it even starts.

But the happiness it brings you

always gives a special lift

and you realize that Friendship

is God's most precious gift.

Jean Kyler McManus 

It's alright to have a listening ear if you listen

to your needs as well. ©

It is good to make friends that bring out the

best in us rather than the not so good traits. ©

A Desired Friend

I think somewhere, sometime, I may find

A friend who will be forever true,

With a heart of beautiful eternal love

Maybe it will be somebody new. I’ll imagine a heart so very caring

And a willingness to share,

A delightfully sweet sense of humor

With spontaneous care. They shall know how to keep a secret

And when to turn to prayer,

Not needing to always chat

But glad to just “be there”. Might I search away in the blue yonder

Or shall I look behind,

I’m feeling such a sweet tickle inside

Someone special is coming to my mind. Oh then, why should I search so far and wide

For a friend of God’s design,

When your heart was prepared before I prayed

Waiting for me, there all the time.

Sometimes there are no words needed between friends …a knowing look or a hug can say much more. ~ Author Unknown

True Qualities in Friendship

You have a say and I have mine

we may not fully agree all the time

You don't have to meet my every need

that is a kindness, love indeed.

Your manner fosters special trust

not given to pride contempt or lust

That is a friendship that will work

where discontentment does not lurk.

Janet Vargas © May 2012

Healthy Friendships

People are not always at their best

but on these qualities our friendships

should rest:

Forgiveness when one speaks a word out

of line

but it should not be necessary all the time

Some interests to be shared and ventured

Pleasant times that we can treasure__

that does not have to be without measure

And occasional time for adventure.

Janet Vargas © May 2012

Yesterday brought the beginning, tomorrow brings the end, and somewhere in the middle we became the best of friends. ~Author Unknown

Giving is the Key to Living

Every day is a reason for giving

and giving is the key to living....

So let us give ourselves away

not just today but every day.

And remember, a kind and thoughtful deed

or a hand outstretched in a time of need

Is the rarest of gifts for it is a part

not of the purse but a loving heart....

And he who gives of himself will find

true JOY of heart and PEACE of mind.

Helen Steiner Rice ©

My Sister. She is such a sweet person full of adventure, a zest for life....and the above poem describes her so well.

The Ideal Home

On laughter and happiness you can build

a home

With peace, sweet peace you can call your own

and love, such love can always be found.

Material things come second__

they don’t have to be the best in town

Yes, these are the values that make for a home

one I will gladly call my own.

A Mother...

When you're a child she walks before you,

to set an example.

When you're a teenager she walks behind you

to be there should you need her.

When you're grown up she walks beside you

so that as two friends you can enjoy life together..

My Mother kept a Garden

My Mother kept a garden,

a garden of the heart,

She planted all the good things

that gave my life it's start.

She turned me to the sunshine

and encouraged me to dream,

Fostering and nurturing

the seeds of self-esteem...

And when the winds and rain came,

she protected me enough -

but not too much because she knew

I'd need to stand up strong and tough.

Her constant good example

always taught me right from wrong -

Markers for my pathway

that will last a lifetime long.

I am my Mother's garden.

I am her legacy -

And I hope today she feels the love

reflected back from me

Grandchild, It’s Been a Joy

Grandchild, It’s been a joy

since you were small,

to watch you learn and grow,

To share in your accomplishments

and see the warmth you show…

And all the love

and pride that’s felt

keeps growing each year, too,

Because it means so much

to have a grandchild like you.

Author Unknown

Nature of a Woman

A woman is never too assured she’s loved Constant affection is sometimes nice

Sometimes she will sacrifice

something for her spouse or child.

She’s apt to express those things she feels Sometimes she’s not on an even keel

Often she loves you more than you know

And when she’s upset her fluster shows.

If you would please her, do something nice

Your warmth and kindness by day and night.

Grandparents Bestow

Grandparents bestow upon their grandchildren the strength and wisdom that time

and experience have given them.

Grandchildren bless their Grandparents

with a youthful vitality and innocence

that help them stay young at heart forever. Together they create a chain of love

linking the past with the future.

The chain may lengthen, but it will never part...


I'm the twinkle in my Grandpa's eye...

A Beautiful Man

It's your birthday, you deserve a treat,

You're my grandpa, and you're very sweet.

Whatever you wish or simply desire,

Your kind words, always inspire.

Hope you're not worried, about your age,

You're just turning, another page.

Your journey has been,

an exciting book,

Beautiful memories, through pictures we look.

Today we celebrate, your life that's been full,

Happy moments, naturally you pull.

Most importantly, we're here to share,

A beautiful man, with a heart that is rare.


Beauty of Grandparents

Few can bring the warmth

We can find in their embrace,

And little more is needed to bring love.

Than the smile on their face.

They've a supply of precious stories,

Yet they've time to wipe a tear,

Or give us reasons to make us laugh,

They grow more precious through the years.

I believe that God sent us Grandparents

As our legacy from above,

To share the moments of our life,

As extra measures of His love.

~Author Unknown~

My daddy taught me

My daddy taught me that we all are special

We all have our own faults yet we all still are special.

My daddy taught me to be brave

To feel the fear yet still be brave.

My daddy taught me to make the most of every moment

To make the best of the people you share moments with

To make lots of memories to create a past

In case in the future I am lonely

My daddy taught me to love

And love will comfort me.

~ Author Unknown

Gran's Special Touch

Grandmother, we appreciate you.

Because of you

each day is a little brighter,

the sun shines a little warmer,

foods tastes better

and life is simply sweeter,

You bind us together with love and devotion,

this family you created with such tender loving care.

We want you to know how much you mean

to each and everyone of us,

and, especially that we cherish you

every moment of every day!

Words of Wisdom

One cannot live another’s life

Choose their interests or make their decisions Carry their problems or determine their outcome.

Each person has the power of choice

Interests of theirs are different to ours. Decisions? They know what’s right for them.

We can pick them up and sometimes not

in this rest that God knows our future.

Remember these things sometimes with your children__

They’re on loan to us and make their way

Provide for them a nice environment

And be the best friend you can.

Janet Vargas © June 2012

My Son. A man of quiet composure and special strengths. One with values and few words, wisely chosen. A lover of nature and times with friends.


I really feel quite special

That God has chosen you.

To be a person in my life

Who knows me through and through.

The time that we spend talking,

I've always felt you heard...

You've been so good at listening

To each and every word.

And even things I didn't share,

You somehow heard them too.

I think this is a special gift

That God has given you.

So I just want to thank you

For being there for me,

And showing me acceptance

And love so totally.


Walking with Grandpa

I like to walk with Grandpa,

His steps are short like mine.

He doesn't say "Now Hurry Up,"

He always takes his time.

I like to walk with Grandpa,

His eyes see thing like mine do -

Wee pebbles bright, a funny cloud,

Half hidden drops of dew.

Most people have to hurry,

They don't stop and see.

I'm glad that God made Grandpa,

Unrushed, and young like me.

~Poem by Thena Smith~

Qualities of a Mum

Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.

A mother understands what a child does not say

Mother, the ribbons of your love are woven around my heart.

A mom's hug lasts long after she lets go.

Mom, when thoughts of you are in our hearts, we are never far from home.

~Authors Unknown

"Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow; Don't walk behind me, I may not lead__ Walk beside me, and just be my friend."

Love and Guidance

Your loving granddaughter thinking of you,

We are a team, our bond is like glue.

A few words, to show how I feel,

Straight from my heart, true and so real.

You have always, been there for me,

Supported me, like the roots of a tree.

Sometimes I caused you, worry and aches,

You pushed me to grow, with my mistakes.

Taught me to be honest, truth never mask,

You listen patiently, when questions I ask.

Thank you so much, for loving me,

Your love and guidance, has set me free.


No-one like Grandad

A Grandad is a person who is loving and kind,

And he often can tell, what's on your mind.

He's someone who listens, suggests, and defends

A Grandad can be one, of your very best friends!

He's proud of your triumphs, but when things go wrong

A Grandad can be patient and helpful and strong.

In all that you do, Grandad’s love plays a part

There's always a place for him deep in your heart

And each year that passes, you're even more glad

More grateful and proud, to call him Grandad.

We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives. Maya Angelou

Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at it's destination full of hope. Maya Angelou

I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.
