The Happiness of Friends

Have I 

Ever told you 

What makes me 


It's not sunny days

Or pretty poetry

Or even my favorite stories.

A good friend

To just hang with and

Watch TV shows

Makes me smile,

Lifts my spirits,

Soothes my soul.

Good-natured jokes and

The effort to keep me around and 

The comfort of just being 

With them is like a tincture for 

My soul,

My heart,

My mind,

And nothing in this world could

Possibly change that feeling of


Associated with them.

They make me smile by being them.
