Poem by: Sylvia Outlaw


Friendship is like a garden

With different flowers everywhere;

Some are your very favorite’s

And you treat them all with care.

Others may drift by the wayside

They soon whither and fade away;

But some will continue to blossom

In true friendship day after day.

And I pray in my life’s garden

I’ve planted friendship to keep;

That I have sowed some kindness

And I’ve planted it good and deep.

And as I count my blessings

And my flowers one by one

I see your face among them

Moving in the morning sun.

God’s helped me with my garden

He’s been there my whole life through;

And he gave me the greatest gift

When He gave me friends like you
