I met you in the early Spring

So many years ago

When life was slow and easy,

No rushing to and fro.

You called me friend with voice so warm

I knew right from the start

Our bond of friendship had begun

That never would depart.

So many hopes and dreams we’ve shared,

Some disappointments too.

I always knew that come what may,

That I could count on you.

Though miles may separate our paths,

We’re never far apart.

For you, dear friend, will always be

Special in my heart.
