Friends are so important everyone needs a few.
Some are our old friends and some may be brand new.
It’s good to have a “best friend” on whom you can depend.
If you have a problem a best friend can help you mend.

Spouses should always be your very top best friend.
It’s a lifelong friendship that you pray will never end.
They are always closest no matter what life brings.
Sharing all the good times and kissing away the stings.

Good times shared with friends are better than going it alone.
But friends may come and friends may go as life goes on.
So we should develop new friends as the old ones move away.
“To have a friend you must be a friend”, so the sages say.
