I Will Be Your Friend
When everything you have is lost, all friends and family,
I will always stay with you, you can count on me.
If people judge and criticize, with a sole aim to offend,
I will cherish your very presence. I will always be your friend.
If you come upon riches or fortunes you may find,
I will ask for nothing, I will be behind.
When people that you trust, may cheat or steal from you,
I will always be loyal, that's all I want to do.
If danger comes to close with harms ambition to succeed,
I will be in front of you, I will take the lead.
If injury becomes you and your body feels the strain,
I'll be there to comfort you, I too will feel the pain.
If you have done a wrong or when your fill of hate,
I will hold no resentment. I will always wait.
And when your tired and weary and you lay yourself down to sleep,
I will watch over you, I'll stand guard at your feet.
When no one else will listen and emptiness gets to much,
I will long to hear your voice and wish for your touch.
If you get angry and start to curse my name,
I will never leave you, I will love you just the same.
And when your life draws to an end and you go to meet your god.
I will stay behind, because I am just a dog.
