A friend is one you know and trust
Who’ll stand by you from dawn till dusk.
It’s wonderful what a friend can do
To cheer you when your feeling blue.
A friend will say, “I love you so.”
Or, “Gee, I hate to see you go.”
A friend can soothe away the pain,
Restoring your happy smile again.
A friend is one in whom you believe
Whose kindness burdens can relieve.
A friend can cheer a lonely day,
By inviting you to come and stay.
A friend is like a summer breeze,
Putting your troubled soul at ease.
