In times of trouble,
In times of need.
If u are feeling sad,
You can count on me.

I will give you a wink,
Untile you smile,
Give you a hug,
And stand by your side.

I`ll be there for you till the end,
I`ll always and forever,

I love my friend more than life but he is oblivious to my feelings. He
flies away out of my life, hurting me without knowing it - for he has
chosen someone else for his true love. The pain of loss is so intense I
can but puzzle at it, stunned - ah sweet, sweet friend, I will love you
forever, no matter what.

"My Friend Must Be A Bird" is a concise interpretation of a close
relationship with a human being. We can not force a friendship, it takes
time to build and it still remains in our hearts, even when we may not see
one another often. We each have our own life to live and treasure that
freedom to go and do the things we want to do. Since we care about our
friends, we, of course, are sad or hurt if there have been any cross words
spoken to one another. Just as the bee brings us honey, the sweetness of
life, so do our friendships, but just as the bee stings, so can our words
"the barbs" if they are said in a hurtful manner. We all are here to live
and a short life it is and we all will die. It is important to not let too
much time pass if a friendship is faltering. You must make clear skies
between one another so you can continue the fulfilling flight of life
through the wing of a treasured special friendship.
