A Friend Like You

A friend like you to
Be there by my side when others are
Criticizing me and
Doubting me. You are there with me
Every step of the way. I’m glad to have a
Friend like you. Even though you are
Gone, you’ll always be missed. And sometimes it gets
Hard without you here, but
I remember the times we shared together and that’s
