A friend will stand right by your side,
And help you stem the raging tide.
A friend will fight with you, back to back,
And give you the strength that you lack.
A friend will hold you, to dry your tears;
And make you laugh to quiet your fears.
A friend will tell you when you are wrong,
And direct you back to where you belong.
And friend will lift you up when you are down,
And rescue you from the lost and found.
I have such a friend, who is tried and true;
And, my friend, that is you.
