Hope (1)

It seems when I am down and out
And have no where to turn
I’ve almost lost all peace of mind
For happiness I yearn

I feel so free to come to you
And tell you everything
You always help me smile again
And pain to loose it’s sting

You look beyond my deepest flaws
Bring out the best in me
And even when I’m not so great
The beauty in me see

You’re always ready with a hug
To calm my restless soul
And things you say are wonderful
They help to make me grow

I only hope that I can be
A friend as you have been
And be there when you’re crying so
Lift you to your feet again

So when you’re feeling down and out
And have no place to go
Remember that I’m here for you
And how I love you so

My Very Best Friend

Have you ever had a friend
Who you’ve loved way deep inside
And was there for every tear
Not a secret you would hide

When you needed it the most
That friend was always there
Knew the perfect things to say
Had time to always care

That friend was true and good
And you were number one
Any mention of request
That thing was surely done

When crying and depressed
That friend would hold you tight
And say the kindest things
Was ready day or night

How can I ‘er repay
This friend I hold so dear
Who means everything to me
all my problems hear

I’ll be a best friend back
That’s as good as I can do
This friend of mine I love
My friend does love me too
