Children at play on merrygorounds, happy and laughing no pushing no fighting not kicking one to the ground.
He came to us from above We welcome him with so much love.
We love you, want you back with us. A family torn apart on a wim of no proof.
I known you for a short time, But I can say you were my friend.
Day Of Sorrow
Two black jets destroyed our buildings. We lost our friends and our famalies.
They took you away from us, we care and love you. We still have your favorite toys, stuffed animals too.
Sick and frail we pray she be well. A lot of pain she not
To cradle to hold to love They're so small To rock them to sleep Need to be close to you
Home from work tired and hungry, he always makes time for his grandbaby's, to sit them upon his knee.
We fought, we argued thru the years. We nicpick, we teased We did not share.
Holds her child close feels their pain and comforts them.

True friend offer gum
True friend offer soda
True friend offer food
True friend helps you
turn the other cheek.
True friend helps you walk
away, not to fight.
True friend offers helping
True friend gives one
enouragement, not resentment
True friend is always there
