Like a needle in a haystack,
true friends are hard to find.
That’s why I’m so thankful that I can call you mine.
Whenever I need a shoulder you’re there to catch my tears.
You’ve kept my many secrets,
Throughout the past four years.
You’ve been there through my afflictions,
You’ve witnessed my defeats.
I’ll remember all the good times,
And pray the bad ones don’t repeat.
With you my heart is honest,
but there’s one thing I never told you.
Thank you for everything you’ve done
There’s no one else like you.
No one that could ever be a
true “best” friend like you!
True friends are difficult to find. People believe they have true friends, but in reality they don’t have the qualities that are a true friend. Throughout your life time, you make friends and lose friends. However, true friends are those that stay in your life forever. When thinking of a true friend a few qualities that come to mind such as honest, supportive, and they know you well. Once you find a true friend, you realize the difference between a friend and a true friend.

A true friend is someone who you can be completely honest to and know for a fact the secret will be kept. Also, a true friend does not lie even in the hardest of times.
A true friend is supportive in the toughest of times.
True friendship is the gift of God. The English poet has once said- “Society,
friendship and love
Divinely bestowed upon man”.
So, friendship is divinely bestowed upon man. Since friendship is divine it should be cherished by every individual. Usefulness:

They sometimes betray us for their own interest. They never hesitate to sabotage. Such friends are more dangerous than enemies. Because they catch us by surprise. Besides false friends, there are another class of friends called summer friends or fair-weather friends. They remain with us when we are rich and they leave us when we are wretched. They share our fortune but not our sorrow. So, we should not depend on their friendship with us. The summer friends behave like summer birds, the summer birds come when we have summer. They fly away when the summer moves away. The summer friends, however, are not so dangerous as the false friends. Choice of friends:
