My best friend is always near
Through life’s trials, turns and tears,
Helping calm the stress and fears.
My best friend is always near.
Speech or silence matter not,
Understanding never stops.
Right time, right place, on the spot.
Speech or silence matter not.
Love I seek and love I find,
Tender heart and open mind
In discernment ever kind.
Love I seek and love I find.
Any hour of night or day,
This one friend is here to stay
With a lamp to light my way
Any hour of night or day.
Deepest feelings, wishes, cares-
None too big or small to share
What support! Beyond compare!
Deepest feelings, wishes, cares.
Whether filled with pain or peace,
Faithful friendship doesn’t cease.
Learn to give as I receive,
Whether filled with pain or peace.
Who’s this friend so good to me?
Gentle, patient, spirit free?
Seek and find yours. Ask. Receive!
My best friend, in short, is Me!
