God must have known there would be times
we'd need a word of cheer,
someone to praise a triumph,
or brush away a tear.
He must have known we'd need to share
the joy of "little things",
in order to appreciate
the happiness life brings.
I think he knew our troubled hearts
would sometimes throb with pain,
at trials or misfortunes
or some goal we can't attain.
He knew we'd need the comfort
of an understanding heart,
to give us strength and courage
to make a fresh, new start.
He knew we'd need companionship
so God answered the heart's greatest need
with cherished friends...like you!
