I lay down a card on the table,
My friendship that came from the heart.
You added in kind, and it made us
Much more than the sum of our parts.
You lay down a loyalty strengthened
By losses and wins you came through.
I gave you the same, and we flourished
As equals in trusting and truth.
You raised me a love full of sweetness
That never before had I known.
I prayed that my dealing could match you,
And since then our winnings have grown!
We pooled everything and we married;
Love, friendship and loyalty stand.
The sum of our hearts now is priceless,
Our cards laid by God’s loving hand.
