Rookie (18 march 1994 / lagos, nigeria)

a good friend is a gift


Among the great and glorious
gifts our heavenly Father sends,
Is the gift of understanding that
we find in loving friends,
For in this world of trouble that
is filled with anxious care,
Everybody needs a friend in
whom they're free to share,
The little secret heartaches that
lay heavy on their mind,
We seek our true and trusted
friend in the knowledge that
we'll find,
A heart that's sympathetic and an
understanding mind.
