Quite often it felt like a lifetime

That I spent searching for true friends

Looking for those perfect human beings

That were the ideal blend 


Of course little did I know

That I had to love myself

Much less trying to gain the respect

Of God and anyone else  


Finally I opened my heart and soul

And allowed my flaws to be seen

Instead of standing in the corner

And never truly being part of the scene  


Now it seems to be unbelievable

That I’m surrounded by the very best

People who without fail

Will always pass the friendship test  


Different and interesting

Always one-of-a-kind

Folks who I can always depend on

To share their truth and state-of-mind  


They are the daily gifts

Who make me feel like a wealthy man

A reason to proudly boast

As I fulfill my dream-like plan  


And as my life rolls along

Yet more of these treasures seem to appear 

Making my existence and gratefulness

Feel even more delicious and dear  


So no matter the material goods that I have collected

You are what I have searched for all along

Yes you are the most precious of the precious

Making my heart want to sing a song
