Friendship by Derek HainesHello Friend

Credit my account with your friendship,
And I will return your change with a smile.
For I know we’ll neither overdraw,
Once we have stood the test a while.

A friendship is always growing,
From its early first sown seed.
And with the gentle art of caring,
It will grow at a steady speed.

The want to make your cherished friend,
A content and happy soul.
Will bring the rich and full rewards,
That will be treasured ‘til you’re old.
Sometimes there are testing times,
When the scales seem to be tipped.
And maybe a time to stay tight-lipped.

Just hang in there for your true dear friend,
To make it through their strain.
And very soon, the balance restored,
Your accounts are balanced again.
I will never measure my life by wealth,
Of investments cash and gold.
I will always measure how rich I am,
By the friends retained when I am old.
