There are people that we call friends
as we travel through life’s long miles;
People we meet in our jobs and play;
People who make us smile.

But a friend is more than a passing,
more than just someone we know,
a friend is a person who loves us
a person who helps us to grow.

A friend will be there through the trials
they will hold us and dry our tears.
A friend will always stand by us,
will help to calm our fears.

A friend can be many miles away,
or live right across the street,
we may not see them for years at a time
but still know them when next we meet.

Friends were created by angels,
to help lift us up from the fall;
A friend will rush to your side,
no matter what time you call.

You can bare your soul to a friend,
for they'll not betray your trust
A friend will treat you with kindness,
They would never be unjust.

So tonight as I say my prayers,
I give thanks for you, my friend;
And I just want you to know,
I'll be with you until the end.
