A companion when I am lonely,
A reason to smile when I am down.
A friend to put me on my feet
When I've fallen to the ground.

A friendly voice on the telephone,
A smile when I open the door.
Someone to build fond memories with.
Who could ask for anything more?

A hand to guide me through the rough spots,
Someone to comfort all my tears
And help me laugh right into
The face of all my fears.

A friend to share excitement with,
An understanding soul.
There's a place for you within my heart.
You are precious to me, don't you know?
