A Friend

A friend is like a ray of sunshine

Making a brighter day,

That fills our life with a light so bright

All the clouds are driven away.


A friend is like beautiful music

That lingers in your heart,

And when a lovely melody is heard,

The ill of life depart.


A friend is like a refreshing breeze,

Bringing happiness into our life,

Making sure we feel at ease,

Sharing in our pain and strife.


A friend is someone that I hold,

I hold close to my heart.

I never, ever feel alone,

Even when we are miles apart
