For one bond that lasts lifelong, is true friendship.
I never had a lot of anything
But I always had a little of everything.
I never had a lot and many of friends
But I had a few who would handle my ends.
Lifelong I thought so many people don’t like me
But there were a few who really loved me.
I never had gratitude for those who were mine
But those who weren’t, for them I’d always whine.
Today when I have someone who scolds me when I’m wrong
I feel loved, blessed and strong.
Someone who owns a smile with pride in my happiness
Without whom life is a little more than loneliness.
My teachers always taught me
To be a friend to those who would let me be.
I think I’ve found a better me in their company
Friends I have aren’t many, but they pull me back from difficulty any.
They make me cry but we laugh a little louder
They stand tall but I feel prouder.
Today I am much more than blessed
Not much rich, but I have the biggest treasure chest.
I have friends like you do
I have the one who will sit through.
The measure of joy I hold is, infinity
And the bond I share with them is affinity.
