Friend

A friend is a buddy, a partner, a pal
A friend's anywhere, anytime, anyhow
When troubles are piled up
Like fries on a plate
A real friend is there and will not let you wait

A friend will ply your lungs with laughter
A friend will be your sticking plaster
Make you happy ever after
A safety net
A sure-fire bet

A friend is a neighbour, a backer, an aide
Who smooths your rough edges when you're worn and frayed
When loneliness beckons
Or hopelessness looms
Their kindness will catapult you to the moon

A friend will not refuse a mission
A friend will fuel your optimism
Tough cement that heals division
Erase the blue
Is what they do

A friend's a companion, a comrade a chum
There are other numbers but they're number one
When days are huge mountains
Far too tall to climb
A friend is the leg-up that's lifting you high

A friend will not have cause to doubt you
A friend won't want to live without you
Even when disaster clouts you
Secure as locks
Like solid rocks

A friend is a buddy, a partner, a pal
A friend's anywhere, anytime, anyhow
