This was my Mum's favorite Poem. She passed away when I was young and I have never forgotten the peom as I feel it is so true.
There are friends who pass like ships in the night
Who meet for a moment, then sale out of site
With never a backward glance of regret
Friends we know breifly, then quickly forget
There are other friends who sale together
Through rough seas and stormy weather
Helping eathother throughg joy and through strife
These are the kind that give meaning to life.
