I know not why this “us” began,
Or where it all might end,
But when at dawn each day I stand
I thank God for you, my friends.

I need not name you one by one,
We haven’t got that much time,
But you should know, with each day done,
That you are on my mind.

Weeks go by and sometimes months-
We can’t talk every day-
We’ve shared much laughter and some tears,
Much love along the way.

You’ve fed my very hungry soul
And quenched my insatiable thirst,
And when I count my blessings, please know
That my friends will always come first.
