A priceless gift…

Friendship is a priceless gift
That can’t be bought or sold 
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold  

For gold is cold ‘n lifeless 
It cannot see nor hear 
And in your times of trouble 
It is powerless to cheer  

It has no ears to listen 
No heart to understand 
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand  

So when you ask God for a gift 
Be thankful that he sends 
Not diamonds  pearls  or riches 
But the love of a real  true friend…!
