Friends are precious commodities
unbuyable and unsellable if true
so when they do something great
it doesn’t matter how small
it is worth more than money to me
it is a statement of my worth to you
and I appreciate it no end
life has not been too kind lately
but I am still here, lucky to be
even luckier to be with friends
with thanks and love I am here
to celebrate your celebrating me
it means the world to me
as we age, friends mean more
but often become many less
for that is part of life for all
just know that you are appreciated
and may you always have a spot
for those around you in life
many more than you know
are seeing friends disappear
from their world
indeed from this world
God bless you, and thank you.
