Priceless Gift

Friendship is a Priceless Gift
that can not be bought or sold,
but its value is far greater
than a mountain made of Gold.

For gold is cold and lifeless,
it can neither see nor hear
And in the time of trouble
it is powerless to cheer ..
it has no ears to listen
Nor heart to understand,

It cannot bring you comfort
or reach out a helping hand.
So when you ask God for a gift
be thankful if He sends
not diamonds, pearls or riches

But The Love of Real True Friends.
