Dear Old Friend
You can get attached to all sorts of things,
My word ,Iíll give you that!
Simple things-like slippers or shoes
Or even a battered old hat.
A cat, or a dog, or a well worn book,
A fishing rod, or a chair.
A pair of gloves, a treasured gift;
Or just a lock of hair.
It could be a jewel in a priceless clasp.
Or a simple band of gold.
A well worn purse, a picture or vase.
Or a letter from days of old.
But the nicest treasure,
That you can list.
You will find in the very end.
Itís a gift and a love,
you will always see.
In the face of a Dear Old Friend.
