Growin' up you never know

Which way to turn, which road to take.

What on earth had we been thinkin'

Before some choices we would make?

Years grew on, some have scattered,

Some of us held on,

Wonderin' what does really matter

And tryin' to stay strong.

Thirty years now, some have died,

And for others we've surely cried.

What makes a friendship last so long?

What power holds it up so long?

Thirty years from now I pray

We'll still be looking back to say:

We lived, we loved, we learned, we played.

We danced, matured, and sometimes strayed.

But all in all God kept us safe

Through His most amazing grace.

Each night I pray before I sleep,

I thank Him for a friend to keep.

~
