Sometimes they are rowed
There are times that they are towed
Some just chug along
Some have engines strong

There are those that run forever
Ones that shouldn’t be, no, never
Ships passing in the night
Ships fading out of sight

The friends that make you smile
Friends that go with you the miles
Friendships carry loads
And friendships travel roads

Build them all in friendship yards
Just be a friend, it ain’t that hard
This is all I’ve meant to say
My friends, I truly see that way

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
Editing stage: 


Friends are hard to come by. We cherish those we have and hold them close.

Keep Writing,

"Quoth said the Raven, NEVERMORE"

Good comparison drawn by you between and ships, I couldn't agree with you more about importance of having friends...I have many with whom I have stronger bonds rhan some of my blood relations...
