Friends are an extension of our family

There when they're needed

When dad's at work

And mom is busy

A sis has a quirk

Or a brother's in a tizzy

You call your friend

Up on the phone

Tell them you're sad

And that you're all alone

They don't say

Well that's to bad

Next thing you know

They're there in a flash

Their arms around you

If they need to be

Or their eyes open

If they need to see

And if there's something

That your family's been missing

Your friend's ears are alert

If they need to listen

But most of all

Before the two of you part

They gave you their time

You gave them your heart

There when your crying

Or there when your not

Sometimes a friend

Is all that you've got
