So hard to recieve it
So easy to lose it
It can make you laugh
It can break you in half
It can make you cry
It always waves goodbye
Everybody needs a friend
Someone who doesn't pretend
Someone to trust
who loves your every crust
Someone to call
Someone to catch you before you fall
Someone to stand by you
in good times and bad
no matter what youre going through
They will always be glad
at the fact of your existence
and no matter the distance
they will be there
because they really care.
That is true friendship
and when you receive it
Dont let it slip
and never let it fade away.
