My friend and I went jogging
We sweated and swore we lost
Enough calories burned
We gulped coconut water

My friend's father died
We went to church
She wore black I wore white
She cried I cried

My friend and I boarded the plane
To another island we flew
We squatted on our beach towels
And laughed at absolutely

My friend told me knock knock jokes
Before I went to the hospital
After surgery I remembered them
I smiled

My Friend - the sun rose this
The birds sang at dawn - time out
Just these few minutes I want to
With no one else but You - Sweet

Friend (c)2001 Gillena Cox
