Friendship is a lovely word,

On this we all agree.

But the word is not as lovely

As what you mean to me.

You gave my life new meaning

And made the gray skies blue,

And Christ who is our Helper

Has made our lives anew.

We learned the truth together

And gave our lives to God.

The way has not been easy

But together we have trod.

You bring out all my good thoughts

And the rest we both destroy,

You also helped me train aright

Our little girl and boy.

The kind of friend a wife needs

Through the years . . . is hard to be,

But thank you, Dear, for being

That kind of friend to me.
