Where would we be without our friends?
Friends to laugh with, friends to cry with, friends to pick us up and get us back on track. And, if we’re really lucky, we might have a best friend who does all these things and more!
The ‘Dear Friend’ poem was written by Lizzie Mole, The Original Poet, with such a friend in mind. Celebrate your friendships and tell a pal how much they mean. Think birthdays, Palentines, a gift for your bridesmaid or groomsman or, just because you have a friend who’s awesome!
This poem is also available as a foiled print

Our frames are handmade in Brighton by a highly skilled framer specialising in hand-finishing. We've chosen a simple hand-painted white wooden frame to complement our poem prints.
The frame has been designed with a recess, which means there is a space between the the print and the glazing. This creates a professional gallery-style finish, not found in high street frames.
The frame is made from sustainably sourced pine and is glazed with picture grade acrylic.

I think that you are awesome
I think that you are great
and that’s why you are chosen
to be my bestest mate
you’re clever and you’re funny
you always make me laugh
you’re wise because you steer me
back onto the right path
and so dear friend I thank you
from my top down to my bottom
our friendship is a special thing
and should not be forgotten
