Funny how when you meet someone
you never really know,
if they are going to stay around
or suddenly just up and go.
Rarely do you know ahead
how important they may be,
will it turn into a friendship
on that you must wait and see.
Interesting also is the way you met
was it planned or just by chance.
It could happen on the Internet
or at a summer's dance.
Everyone has an opportunity
to have an impact on your life.
As an enemy or a lasting friend
or perhaps a future wife.
how important you may become.
For if you take a friend for granted
you might end up feeling numb.
Depends too what you’re looking for
it may be just a fling.
But be careful how you treat them
or trouble is what it will bring.
Someday we may understand
how important friendships really are.
And if compassion replaced anger
we really could go far.
Yes, Friends are strangers we’ve yet to meet
and they may come from anywhere.
Always keep compassion in your heart
and let them know how much you care.
