Friendship is a special devotion
by Jane Secor
Fulfilling a uniquely personal need;
A treasure of a fragile emotion
Which must be nurtured to succeed.
The joy of intimate sharing
Is purely a human trait.
We choose the ones for caring
Not relying on chance or fate.
Feelings develop which are sincere,
Unlike any other of its kind;
Its nature is not always clear
As it envelops the human mind.
As subtly as it evolved,
The friendship can be suspended;
And either of the parties involved
Sadly, can declare it ended.
