“Just One Friend”

If life gives only on true friend, 
One who is faithful to the end,
Then life has given more than gold,
The greatest joy a heart can hold.
If just one friend is ours to share,
To understand, believe and care,
Then life is sweet, complete and true
Because of just one friend like you.
