Lord it’s funny’
How pain can be so lonely
It’s funny to face a sad reality
‘My friends are fewer than I think’

During the good times
We all laughed and had fun
But when the sad moments,
Which defines real life
Came knocking
I was left pondering
The moment of truth

It’s funny
To realize that success
Breeds various associations we call friendship

It’s also funny
To realize that failure
Test and defines these associations

It’s funny
When I remember how hard I tried
To be a good friend…
Maybe I failed but I tried….
I laughed when they smiled
I mourned and wept when they sorrowed

But now my pain is overwhelming
I’m all alone …
Except for…

The folks I didn’t count as my true friends
They became the angels you used to encourage me
The one I cared less about
Became the sunshine you used to light up my day
The full moon that shines through my night
The stars adding a little bit of sparkle to my dark sky

They are my guardian angels
My true friends
The guys who held up my hands in battle
They had my back all along

They’ve made me stronger
Now I love solely from my heart
I give and expect nothing in return
No price I can pay
For the gift of friendship

Lord I thank you for my friends
I pray for them…
I’ll always remember them in my prayers
Because as they wiped the tears away from my face
You showed me that when I walk
Through life’s dark alleys
I’ll never walk alone.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

You are right, you will never walk alone....because GOD will be there right beside you, every step of the way. He has his eye on the "Sparrow". :)
