Love this poem book!

That’s What Friends Are For by Jan Miller Girando
When life’s being lived at hurry-up pace
With hectic things happening all over the place,
A friend understands and allows us our space…
That’s what friends are for.
When we’re feeling grumpy and scowly and cross,
And not quite succeeding at being the boss,
A friend cheers us up so the day’s not a loss…
That’s what friends are for.
And when there’s excitement and joy in the air,
Occasions to celebrate, good news to share,
There’s one you can count on to always be there…
That’s what friends are for.
They give us advice that we’d do well to heed,
Gently suggest the “fine tuning” we need,
Then join in our happiness when we succeed…
That’s what friends are for.
We’ll always be friends as we have from the start,
And when we’re together or when we’re apart,
Our friendships will always be close to my heart…
That’s what friends are for.

This is just one of the many poems in this volume!
