God must have known there would
be times we'd need a word of cheer,
someone to praise a triumph, or
brush away a tear.
He must have known we'd need to
sharethe joy of "little things", in
order to appreciate the happiness
I think he knew our troubled hearts
would sometimes throb with pain,
at trials or misfortunes or some
goal we can't attain.
He knew we'd need the comfort
of an understanding heart,
to give us strength and courage
to make a fresh, new start.
He knew we'd need companionship
unselfish...lasting...true, so God
answered the heart's greatest need
with cherished friends...like you!
