Who is a friend?
It is someone who makes you happy when you hear their voice
Who is interested in what you have to say
Who cares when things go wrong for you
Who is happy for your victories and successes
Who wants to know what you are doing
Who is there to talk to you
And who grieves when bad fortune comes your way
And who will remember you every day
When you have departed this planet for another place
That is a friend.
