Need a Friend
Life is a splendid thing, for sure
Or could be, quite a lot,
For being showered with loving friends
Is the nicest thing we've got.
God's been watering all our hearts
Of this we do not doubt,
In planting only lovely things
We get the good things out.
If we've got some love to share
With a friend all tried and true,
We sure feel oh so cozy
Sharing the special things we do.
Sometimes these days it pours with rain
So we hit some right raw mud,
But we can patch it up with loving
And chuckle at the fun.
Our God was nice to make blue skies
Come out with nice sunny hours
In rolling out the cutest kids
He planted all the flowers.
This place is not all bad
From all the praying on our knees,
Cause it has a kinder face
With all the nicest you and me's.
God gives us all a bite to eat
And with enough to spend,
Then is generous too, to share
A little more to lend.
These days there's way too much
Of shoving just to get,
We need to leave a lot more space
For loving others yet.
But, I do thank our caring Father
The brightest morning star,
That He is keeping watch on all
To keep us safe just as we are.
I send you lots of happy thoughts
With prayers God bless your health,
To laugh away tomorrows blues
And a huggle for your little self.
