Good friends are wonderful that is true
Openly supporting you in all you do
Offering to be there whenever there's need
Deliberately nurturing the friendship’s seed!
Fondly helping you through your pain
Remaining with you till well again
Inspiring you with words to help you through
Every hurting emotion that may trouble you!
Naturally enjoying it when they see you smile
Dreaming with you also, once in a while
Staying close even when far away
Happily thinking of you day by day,
Investing in you time, thoughts and love
Praying with you to God above!
