A Lasting Friendship--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

A Lasting Friendship

No one can make a friendship
steadfast and true,
without working to build a bridge
throughout years of troubles and sickness…
A bridge to walk when there
is no one else to care…
a true friend is a smile
that stays when you walk,
the bridge alone.

John W. (Bill) Williams is a retired language arts and children’s literature educator.  He lives in Martin, GA, where he stays busy with his art and poetry.  He has been published in a variety of venues.

  3. Bill, what a wonderful and touching poem. It brought tears to my eyes, especially where you wrote: "a true friend is a smile
    that stays when you walk, the bridge alone." Such sentiment in a well-written piece. Thank you for sharing, my friend. Continued blessings!
