A friend is a gift to behold –
for it is a gift from God,
two life’s brought together –
side by side they will trod.
A bond so strong like a chain –
being there when each one calls,
carrying for each one’s needs –
to lift broken spirits when they fall.
To share this journey of life –
the joys and struggles of each day,
always lending an open ear –
when one has something to say.
Caring for what’s in the heart –
giving each the gift of love,
whether close or far away –
giving this gift from above.
Friends challenge each other –
to be the best each can be,
giving without asking in return –
that’s what you, my friend, mean to me.
The doors of communication always open –
willing to change for the better,
based on this love of God –
bringing each closer together.
“The greatest gift,” He said –
and thus my heart will never bend,
“is to lay down your life for another” –
I would do that for you, my friend!
