The fabric of our lives is sewn with many threads,
Among the threads are those that give it color,
Depth, and warmth.
These are the threads of friendship.
For a time, like all threads, they may fray and even break,
Worn and faded.
Then new threads are woven in.
Still, some constant threads remain and help to hold the cloth of our lives together.
These are golden threads that do no break easily, if at all.
They stand out less than the brighter colored threads sometimes,
But they are always there.
Looked at from the perspective of time,
They are gold;
They are rare.
