Friends


 
We all hope for one special friend
The sex of which does not depend

Someone to listen and understand
When life makes its demands

Good times, bad times, laughter and tears
A confidante over so many years

You know so much about my life
Shared the good times and the strife

A special friendship is better than a marriage
No expectations and certainly no baggage

To say a thank you might sound trite
But having you as my friend is oh so right

So I thank you anyway from the bottom of my heart
And here’s hoping that we never part.
