My neighbors ‘n friends…

My neighbors ‘n my friends are very dear to me
They are always there whenever there is a need

We talk to each other ‘n we borrow ‘n lend
Such treasures they are, my neighbors ‘n friends

I sing when they sing ‘n I laugh when they laugh
We do things for each other on the other’s behalf

They share with me their many worries ‘n fears
I share with them my compassion ‘n my tears

How lonely ‘n cheerless a place my soul would be
Without such neighbors ‘n good friends as these

I cherish them all ‘n take each one into my heart
Feeling the love ‘n kindness each in turn imparts…!
