One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24
Oh, celebrate your friend today;
Tell her what she really means to you.
Dwell on all the times that you shared;
Think on all the things she likes to do.
Remember that life is too short,
and it should be full of love and joy.
Don’t let your words cause a tear;
For in the end that’s all she’ll hear.
Recall the days talking on the phone
And pretending you were all alone
Oh how you’ll long to see her smile
Even if only for a little while.
So celebrate your friend today;
Speak kind words that I pray.
Don’t let it be too late to let her know
That you love her ever so.
For tomorrow is another day
and your friend may go away
To the land far beyond the sky;
and you’ll be grieved by your last good-bye.
