Ah, friendship - flowering, heaven-born plant!
Nurtured art thou in the soul of measureless love,
In seeking of soul progress together
By two who would smooth the way, each for
     the other.
Watered art thou by attentions of affection
And the tender dews of inner and outer sweetness
Of the selfless heart's most inner devotion.

Ah, friendship! where thy soul-born flowers fall,
There, on that scared shrine of fragrance,
The Friend of all friends craves to come,
    and to remain.

Excerpt from the poem Friendship
by Paramahansa Yogananda
