Our Friendship Song

There Is A Song Of Friendship
That Dwells Deep Within My Heart,
I Know God Had His Hand On Us
As He Planned This From The Start.
You've No Idea What You Mean To Me
You're My One And Only True Friend,
You Understand My Ups And Downs
And Have Helped My Heart To Mend.
You're The Only Friend I Have
With Who I Can Share My Hurts And Pains,
I Hope You Know If You Ever Need Me
That I Will Listen Just The Same.
God Knew Just What I Needed
To Brighten Up My Days,
Our Hearts Now Bound Together
Through Serious Work Or When At Play.
God Put Us Together To Become True Friends
And Sisters From The Heart,
He Heard My Plea As I Was Needing You
For This Reason We'll Never Part.
I Want You To Look Inside Your Heart
And Understand You're Never Alone,
I'm So Thankful Now That I Found You
As We Now Have Our Friendship Song.



Deep In My Heart

I Could Feel The Many Tears
As They Rolled Down My Face
With This Deep Feeling Of Emptiness
As If I Had Just Lost The Race
With Bitter Feelings Of Uncertainty
Not Knowing What Tomorrow Brings
It Was Then I Heard Your Voice
This Was Such An Amazing Thing
You Gave Me Words Of Encouragement
Which Was What I Needed To Hear
Your Soft Spoken Words
Are What Dried My Many Tears
I Knew Then That I'm Not Alone
Although Were Many Miles Apart
If I Ever Have A Doubt
I'll Look Deep Inside My Heart



Love of My Life

Thank You For Being The Love Of My Life
And For Giving Me Reason To Live
You Are Filled With An Abundance Of Love
And So Much Of Yourself You Give
You Give Me Strength When I Am Weak
And Courage When I Have None
You Are The Reason My Heart Beats
My Precious Angel My Love
You And I Are Like A Fairytale
So Full Of Love And Inspiring Dreams
I Wanted You To Know How I Feel
And Just What You Mean To Me
Our Love Is Like A Perfect Circle
Having No Begining Or End
For This Reason Our Vows Go Unbroken
Like The Circle Without An End


I Love You!


A Forever Love

A forever love is being with someone you cherish
And sharing your joys each day,
Your love growing stronger with each passing minute
While going along your way.


You've made precious memories throughout the years
And on each other you could always depend,
Always remember you have one another
Anytime you're needing a friend.


You raised two fine and precious boys
For this you have made God proud,
God knew from the beginning the life you would live,
From the moment you said your vows.


You can share your heartaches and also your dreams
And maybe a few tears too,
Just remember those few simple words
At the time when you said " I do."


Happy Anniversary




My Christmas Will Be Very Difficult This Year
As Things Just Won't Be The Same
Because When The Angels In Heaven Are Giving Out Gifts
I Know They'll Be Calling Your Name
I Can Picture You In The Choir Of Angels
Singing Carols And Spreading Much Cheer
But It Saddens My Heart More Than You'll Ever Know
Because My Mother Won't Be With Me This Year
I Thank You For The Many Memories
We Were Able To Make At Christmas Time
I Want You To Know You'll Live On Forever
Inside This Heart Of Mine
Fond Memories Will Always Fill My Heart
This Holiday As We're Now Apart
And This Christmas And The Rest To Come
You'll Live On Forever In My Heart
