A friend is one who never gives unsolicited advice.
But who holds the tongue until a nod is given at least twice.
But when the nods are given and the words begin to flow,
You can bet they come with love and wisdom to bestow.
When the sun is shining brightly and all seems to be in place,
My thoughts will turn to you and the splendor of your face.
When it’s raining and a down pour with clouds across the sky,
My thoughts again are on you because you lift my spirits high.
Music has been called the “universal language”.
But a song can hold for each of us an individual message.
The words may not be easy for us to understand,
But the melody and beat extend a warm and welcome hand.
Sometimes the message gets confused in the middle of a song,
But the meaning doesn’t change for whom it does belong.
It is written from the heart with a funny little tune.
Wait a minute. Listen closely. Dear Friend, this one’s for you.
A song is sung for you, today. Its tune is very simple.
The words are tailored just for you, ‘cause you are very special.
Enjoy the tune, accept the words, they are poured out from the heart.
They are sung each day whether we’re together or miles and miles apart.
Friends are like the shoes we own, some tight and some quite loose.
They weather storms with us, like a pair of rubber boots.
They sometimes bring us comfort, like our treasured tennis shoes.
They have those special insoles adding an extra needed boost.
Friends can be added warmth like fuzzy slippers, too.
They can be quite elegant, lift us up like Prada’s do.
They wait inside our closet for a simple clue or two.
Then, there they are, the perfect fit, always coming through.
