What Friendship Means to Me

When I feel so full of doubt,

And cannot see any way out,

You are always there by my side,

So in your strength I may abide,

Until my own strength does return,

With your energy I do so burn,

Your spirit so full of love and life,

I am not able to see any strife,

Your soul so pure and strong,

With your friendship I cannot go wrong,

When I am depressed and feeling low,

Your vigorous force you do show,

Your friendship envelopes and comforts me,

Without you, where would I be?

When hurt and problems I cannot seem to handle,

There you are, a bright burning candle,

Whenever gray clouds darken my skies,

An inner light shines in your eyes,

And immediately all is well and bright,

For in life again I find delight,

In our friendship I find acceptance and comfort,

And when life bring me only hurt,

You are right there to guide me on my way

You help me see our friendship is here to stay,

But when I feel all I do is wrong and sin,

You are always there to show me I can win,

I don't know what I would do without you,

For then my life would truly be blue,

So I thank you Sheri and the stars above,

For your undying friendship and trusting Love!

Written for someone I love with all my heart. We have stood by each other for 47 years through the ups and downs of our lives BUT I got the better of the deal–she has actually saved my life!
