Friendship is life, heaven, and love - something everyone needs;

And counting ourself as our own best friend is planting a healthy seed.

We have a choice of who we choose to be our true soulmate;

Someone constant, never forgotten, and someone we'll never forsake.

We're never hurtful; we listen and praise; we're there through good times and bad.

Friendship is truth, caring and sharing - an angel when life is sad.

Friendship grows slowly as we learn to trust and know that we both feel the same;

Whether spouse, sibling, your tired old dog - when there's trust, that's a friendship gained.

Sincere understanding of what's in our hearts - meeting each other half way

Is the recipe for a lasting friendship for years beyond today.
