Friends

Who would have ever thought it, who would have ever guessed,
Two people living so far apart, could become the very best;
Not of mere acquaintances, nor ships that pass in the night,
But something much more wonderful, so very much more right.

A chance meeting, unexpected, from which blossomed the rarest flower,
Which has grown into a closeness, that increases hour by hour;
A union of two spirits, who until now had journeyed apart,
Have forged a special bonding, where the link is heart-to-heart.

Thus from this day on forward, to each and everyone let it be known,
As long as we two continue to be, the other will never be alone;
Because we found in one another, that something that will never end,
Something worth much more than gold, a companion and a friend.
