This is my value as a friend:
To calm and comfort, soothe and mend
To be at your side if you should need,
To heal your heart if it should bleed.
When you cry to wipe your tears
To chase away all of your fears,
To listen long into the night
Until you're sure it's all alright.
To hold your hand when you feel weak
Help you find all that you seek,
And when you feel you can't be strong
To save you the strength to carry on.
To love as long as I shall live
And until I've nothing more to give
To watch over you until you've grown
Enough to face the world alone.
