You've Got A Friend

Miles Away, Or Just Down The Street, Comfort Is In The Voice Of One's Who Love You.

The comfort in that voice you know, the one who’s always had your back.

Pulling down that drive that leads you home.

Two arms wrapped around you, when everything you knew was black.

A phone call, so you didn’t feel alone.


The calmness in a sunset, security in a smile,

The hand in yours, while walking side by side.

A visit from someone you haven’t seen in quite awhile,

a trustworthy friend you know you can confide.


The little things in life are so much bigger than you think,

when the time comes and you wish you had them back.

Mama's gentle laugh and daddy’s call to get you home,

nothing in life comes close, compared with that.


Jumping in mud puddles , dancing in the rain,

singing into a hair brush- while playing air guitar.

Core memories in the making - watching shooting stars at night,

Sunday drives, cruising the country in the car.


Christmas eve anticipation, Christmas morning childhood magic,

in every day occurrences, it’s there.

Gentle caresses on your face or a warm tender embrace,

comforts given freely, from someone who cares.


Someone who loves you just for you,

through their actions, not just words.

We all have that special person, parent or a friend,

That in any given moment drops it all to be with you

giving comfort throughout your thick and thins.
