Soldier Of Friendship
The war is over; it's time to do.
To do what's in your heart.
To treat your neighbor like he's you
and you and you apart.
To bring a smile; to say hello.
To talk with him a tad.
To shake a hand to comfort him
and make him feel as glad.
Then maybe walk along with him
to share a time and pace.
Remembering he's just like you,
to look him in the face.
Then find a place that's interesting
to learn a thing or two.
By bringing out your differences
you'll grow to love a few.
Then share a meal to end the day;
reflecting on the past.
And know that when it's made for two
a friendship comes to last.
