Not Far to a Friend’s House
When you think of this world with all its pleasure
Of its glory and riches untold
Naught compares to the wealth of a friendship
For its value outweighs that of gold.
And it’s not very far to a friend’s house
Where there dwells someone both tried and true
And the time that slowly turns to ages
Always brings that friend closer to you.
There are times when this life seems full of trouble
And you feel there’s no place you can turn
That friend brings new strength for your conflict
When you hurt, their heart shares your concern.
In your mind lies a host of precious memories
And some thought brings a smile to you each day
For in life with all its many phases
Good friends place a bit of sunshine there to stay.
