Someone to walk with and talk with and turn to.

Finding A Friend
There are red-letter days in our lives when we meet people who thrill us like a fine poem, people whose handshake is brimful of unspoken sympathy, and whose sweet, rich natures impart to our eager, impatient spirits a wonderful restfulness which, in its essence, is divine.
The perplexities, irritations, and worries that have absorbed us pass like unpleasant dreams, and we wake to see with new eyes and hear with new ears the beauty and harmony of God's real world.
There's a special kind of freedom friends enjoy. Freedom to share innermost thoughts, to show their true feelings. The freedom simply to be themselves.

Out to the undiscovered ends,
There's nothing worth the wear of winning,
But laughter and the love of friends.
No life is so strong and complete, but it yearns for a friend.

And each rainbow has its end.
But no cloud can hide the light
Of my dear and trusted friend.
Honest men esteem and value nothing so much in this world as a real friend. Such a one is as it were another self, to whom we impart our most secret thoughts, who partakes of our joy, and comforts us in our affliction; add to this, that his company is an everlasting pleasure to us.
Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.
Walk beside me and just be my friend.
