I've been a lot of places
I've seen a lot of faces
I've parted bread with many
And said my graces

But had it not been for you, my friend
I would not have known life and
What beauty in it abides
You've comforted me when I was down
You've listen without a sound

I could never repay your kindness
To my faults complete blindness
You've always been at arms length
In you, I've found new strength

Caring, sharing, never judgmental
You wiped my tears With hands ever 
so gentle

You've elevated me to new heights
Through you, my friend I've seen brighter skies

There clings a friend closer than a brother
Like you, I know God has not made another
