A Friend Like You
One of God's blessing to a man,
Is to send him an angel in the form of a human.
Each day i keep thanking the stars,
For blessing me with a friend as amazing as the stars.
A friend i found in you,
With a caring heart available to few.
A friend like no other friend,
That i can lay down my life to defend.
A friend not so far from my heart,
Someone i can call a sweetheart.
A friend i don't regret meeting,
That keeps my heart beating.
A friend i can't scream at or fight with,
Not even in my time of writhe.
A friend i love so so much,
Treasure and care for so much.
A friend like you is like having no worries in my life,
That's why i choose to keep you even in my afterlife.
A friend i don't want to lose,
God's amazing gift that i can't refuse.
A friend created with all measures of beauty,
Made with every sense of human and heavenly beauty.
A friend i have always wanted,
Someone i have chosen to keep even when being taunted.
A friend like you is like being in comfort all day,
And an heavenly blessing in every way.
A friend with an angelic smile,
That can heal a broken heart from a thousand mile.
A friend that makes a heart that never pains,
That washes away my misery like the rains.
A friend like you is that type of friend,
That puts all of my fears to an end.
A friend that changed everything around me,
By your side is where i want to forever be.
A friend whose beautiful name is ESTHER,
Whose future is so bright like a star.
You are a smile in my tearsful face,
And a wonderful memory i can't erase.
You're a friend i promise to keep till the end,
And forever i will be proud to call you my best friend.
