Your relationship has undergone great strain
But your true friend as your true friend does remain
And as friends with him you are destined to stay
Till in your lives the reaper has the final say.
Your true friend always will be your true friend
A bond that remains until your life's end
True friendship it transcends anger and strife
A mateship that is destined to last for life.
True friendships often are put to the test
And true friends have often even come to blows
But true friends always do make up again
They could not bear for to remain as foes.
Despite the tests your friendship has endured
And your true friend is a trustworthy mate
For friendship it is based on truth and trust
And our gift of friendship we should celebrate.
