My Heavenly Friend

By AR

If you leave where will I be

If you weren’t here what would I see

When I look at you

I see a person of all one could be

And when I’m your presence

I feel that paradise is upon me

When I need you you’re always here

I can’t find the words because none can compare

But for a friend in me I hold you dear

Because you’re an individual

Of much love, wisdom, and patience to share

A good friend is hard to find

But God bless me with one that defends

And for that blessing alone
It’s time I start giving mine

And show a light of my own that shines

Thank you my heavenly Friend
