Friends eternal,

You're a true friend

and I want you to know

that our love for each other

has helped us to grow.

We've been through some tough times,

but we've made it through.

The only one I ever trusted was you.

You helped me through anger,

you've chased away fears.

You held me through sadness

and kissed away tears.

You stayed by my side

when the world turned away.

You helped me see joy

when the skies were all gray.

You were the rainbow

at the end of the storm.

You help me be different

when I shouldn't conform.

You held my hand

when you knew we would fall.

Every heartache,

you saw me through it all.

I'm not sure

I'm always the best friend to you.

I know I'm not perfect,

but this much is true,

When life gets you down,

and there's nowhere to turn,

I'll help you through and

I'll share your concern.

I'll try my best to return every favor,

When you're sure that you'll drown,

I'll be your lifesaver,

Even if we both go down.

Whether we sink or swim

doesn't matter at all,

Just know that I'll be there

whenever you call.

I'll pull you out

when life pulls you under.

I'll be the sun

when there's lightning and thunder.

And when it's all over,

and we've fought every war,

There's one thing I promise,

of this I am sure,

When the time comes

that we're put to our rest,

Be sure that you know that,

my friend, you're the best.

And if there's a heaven,

I know you'll be there.

If you die first,

then you'll hear every prayer

and soon I'll join you.

But just know until then

that I'll miss you each day

'til I see you again.

At the end of the tunnel,

you'll be my guiding light.

You'll lead me to heaven,

away from the night.

We'll be there together

and we'll never grow old.

We'll walk hand-in-hand

on streets paved of gold.
