friendship is a priceless gift

that cannot be bought or sold

but its value is far greater

than the mountain made of gold

for gold is cold & lifeless

it can neither see nor hear

& in the time of trouble

it is power less 2 cheer--

it has no ears 2 listen

nor heart 2 understand

it cannot bring u confort

or reach out a helping hand

so when u ask

god for a gift

be thankful if he sends

not diamonds, pearls or riches

but the love of real true friends
