A cherised friend like you…

God must have known there would be times 
we’d need a word of cheer 
Someone to praise a triumph 
or brush away a tear 

He must have known we’d need to share 
the joy of “little things” 
In order to appreciate 
the happiness life brings 

I think he knew our troubled hearts 
would sometimes throb with pain 
At trials ‘n misfortunes 
or some goals we can’t attain 

He knew we’d need the comfort 
of an understanding heart 
To give us strength ‘n courage 
to make a fresh, new start 

He knew we’d need companionship 
unselfish lasting true, 
And so God answered the heart’s great need 
with a Cherised Friend like you…!
