There are many blessings in this life,
One is friendship to relieve your strife.
A friendship lives within the heart,
You know it’s there when they do not depart.
A friendship is a special gift
For those sad days to give you a lift.
It’s a gift from heaven above,
Another way God shows his love.
When you find yourself down
And all you have is that frown
Sometimes it only takes a friend’s smile
To help you carry on that extra mile.
