Friendship Box

What's inside a friendship box?

Into a box of friendship
To insure that it is strong
First a layer of respect
On the bottom does belong.

Then to the sides attach
In the corners where they meet
Several anchors full of trust
Devoid of all deceit.

The height of friendship can be
Measured by the sides of four
So make them all a larger cut
And the box will hold much

Now fill it up with courtesy
Honor and esteem
Understanding, sympathy
And passion for a dream.

Add to that your honesty
Emotions, joy and love
And since they're so important
Place them up above.

But leave the box wide open
So all can see inside
To learn what makes a friendship works
From the box you built with pride.
