Fair-weather friends are NOT for me
So, I must make them ...history!
I need a friend who’s ALWAYS there
Through sunshine or storm, he shows care!
Someone who knows that I’m weak,
And will plant a kiss on my cheek.
A person who knows what is real
Who’s not afraid my pain to feel!
A friend who knows that I’m not whole,
Yet sees the beauty of my soul.
A friend who’ll never tell a lie
Who can look me straight... in the eye!
My warm shelter from pouring rain
In life’s madness, he keeps me sane!
Fair-weather friends, I kiss goodbye
At least they know the reason why.
“All-weather friends” are very few,
What I’ve longed for, I’ve found in YOU!
