In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity

The Priceless Friend

Searching the world for riches,
Possessing wealth or fame,
Cannot fill the void within us;
Our heart, alone, in pain.

To find a friend who loves us,
Through weather foul or fair,
A friend who's like a brother,
We know is always there.

A friend is far more priceless
Than jewels, wealth, or fame.
Someone who warms heart and soul,
And through the years remains.
