I wish, I wish that I could be
The candles on your birthday cake
The star upon your Christmas tree
Or mushrooms on your juicy steak.
I’d like to be your one true friend
A buddy who will understand
Or lifetime pal until the end
I would be there to help you stand.
Now friendship is a special treat
A precious gift that we may share
It softens many blows we meet
And gives us cause to smile and care !
