That’s What Friends Are For

It was a reminder for me today about friends. We take for granted nearly all things that we have by default. Our family, work, friends etc. Although family in top priority I wont be talking on that.


We all have friends one time or the other throughout our lives. Some we have for a few days perhaps and some for a lifetime. We remember some old friends when we were in our young school days. Most of these lasted till we left that particular school. At that time, when we thought that they were our best and closest friend, exist no more! A few who we never imagined to be our best pals are the ones still with us and seem inseparable!

We all need friends and so should you be one. For good times and bad, they are the ones we celebrate with. A shoulder to cry on when we have lost a loved one, a pet, when hurt, when the world seems to be against us. To celebrate a victory, a birthday, new job, new life, a promotion.

In every step of our lives only friends help us through most of the time.

I am trying to search for all friends I have known when I was in school and college. Back then there was no Facebook or Orkut or any other socializing networks. Luckily I have found many, thanks to these websites and Google.

Look back into your life and remember the friends you had and the good times or bad you had together and reminiscence those moments. Find your lost friend. Thank your friends for all they have done. Life is short and we should not forget to thank those who were with us in sorrow and joy.

This is a lovely song and is a tribute to all my friends.

That’s What Friends Are For Lyrics
song performed by Dionne Warwick in the album Dionne Warwick – Greatest Hits (1979-1990)

And I never thought I’d feel this way
And as far as I’m concerned
I’m glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well then close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That’s what friends are for
For/In good times and/in bad times
I’ll be on your side forever more
That’s what friends are for

Well you came and opened me
And now there’s so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

And then for the times when we’re apart
Well then close your eyes and know
These words are coming from my hearts
And then if you can remember

** Repeat three times
