Life is like a garden
And friendship like a flower,
That blooms and grows in beauty
With the sunshine and the shower.
And lovely are the blossoms
That are tended with great care,
By those who work unselfishly
To make the place more fair.
And, like the garden blossoms,
Friendship's flower grows more sweet
When watched and tended carefully
By those we know and meet.
And, if the seed of friendship
Is planted deep and true
And watched with understanding,
Friendship's flower will bloom for you.
Helen Steiner Rice
Your friendship touches my heart
And I wanted you to know
Even when we are far apart
Our friendship will still grow
So if for now you have to go
It's written in the stars, you see
Days past and yet tomorrow
Friends forever we will be.
