I call you my friend,
but what do I mean?
Why are you more special
than others I've seen?

Why am I at peace
when I'm with you?
Why do I feel warmth
from the things we do?

To receive my love requires
more than just being born.
To be my friend requires
more than being forlorn.

We are friends because
we allow it to be
done with a will
thats entirely free.

But even more
you will find at the end
its the values we share
that make you my friend
