When kisses and handshakes have long been forgotten
And people and places no longer seem near...
If life's weary journey gets bad and then rotten
And cares seem to fill you with fear...
When all through the daytime you worry
And then in your eye comes a tear...
If smiles seem to leave in a hurry
And people don't laugh when you're near

When people you've left, you cease to remember
And people that you've met don't know that you're there...
Bright June days seem like December
With shadows of grey everywhere...
When the burden of living lies on your heart
And people are cruel and unfair...
If no one is present to take your part
And no one is near you to care

When you haven't anyone you can turn to
And your life is beginning to drag...
If you can't do the things you yearn to
If your hopes seem to die or to lag...
When you can't seem to muster up courage
And your back 'neath the burden does sag...
If you are too old for your age
And the things that are done seem to nag

Remember there's one that is always true
That you know will never pretend...
There will always be one thinking of you
Remember, I'll always be your friend!
