Forever Friends!

By Stanley Collymore

The test of true friendship isn’t how much satisfaction or
profit one can derive from a relationship in the shortest
possible time and convince one’s self that all
is well, but rather how patient one can be
when divers problems beset that
relationship, threaten and even
traduce personal reputations –
sometimes beyond repair;
and yet, the loyalty and enduring bonds that
that first moment of respect inspired stay
constant and implacably sincere –
never doubting the wisdom of
it all and, crucially,
always there.
