A Friend in My Life

Updated on November 3, 2010

I have a friend, a friend who is true and kind

He laughs with me and understands my mind

He holds my hand through life’s ups and downs

If troubles are abound, he’s there smoothing my frowns

His heart is too large for his body to hold

A plethora of love that is pure gold

He’s there to support me, loving and caring

Generous and giving, he’s always sharing

He offers his arms for a warm embrace

A rock in my life, anything I can face

His friendship is pure, honest and true

It’s precious like diamonds but priceless in value

He offers his heart for me to take as mine

I have no room left for it, maybe in a different time

I love him, he knows this every day

I hope that he can hold that, to keep any hurt at bay

To him I say now, you’re an angel in my life

I’ll be there for you too through any troubles and strife

I’ll walk with you through life, holding your hand so near

I’m there for you, for everything, upsets, joys and fear.
