My Friend
Painting by Makovskiy

My Friend

I think of all the many times
I've reached out for you, my friend
And you have always been right there
your support to always lend.
An encouraging word, a gentle touch
no words could ever say
What it has meant within my heart
I wish I could convey.

You truly exhibit a special call
straight from the throne of Grace
And every life that touches yours
feels God's loving embrace.
I'm so blessed for having known you
the greatest mentor I have found
May our peace and joy of friendship
forevermore abound.
