Happy valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day to ALL!!!
Wish you get a friend , as special as the one described in Khalil Gibran's poem, in your partner!!

And a youth said, "Speak to us of Friendship."
Your friend is your
needs answered.

He is your field which you sow with love and reap with
And he is your board and your fireside.
For you come to
him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.
When your friend speaks
his mind you fear not the "nay" in your own mind, nor do you withhold the "ay."

And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all
expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed.

When you
part from your friend, you grieve not;

For that which you love most in
him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer
from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening
of the spirit.

For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own
mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.

And let your best be for your friend.

If he must know the ebb of
your tide, let him know its flood also.

For what is your friend that you
should seek him with hours to kill?

Seek him always with hours to live.

For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.

And in
the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.

For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is
