A Quiet Friendship--By Celine Rose Mariotti--United States

A Quiet Friendship

Some people have a real loud friendship,
They want the world to know that they have friends,
They invite themselves into everyone’s life,
They demand a lot,
But they give so little,
When the chips are down,
They’re out the door,

Some people have a quiet friendship,
They keep their love for you deep inside,
They don’t impose or make any demands,
They give a lot and never ask any questions,
When times are rough,
They are there to give affection,

A loud friendship does not thrive,
A quiet friendship will always survive.
