Camp songs are poems too

Friendship Is

Friendship is a shining thing
A steady beam of light
A lantern on a lonely street
A song far in the night.
A smile or a touch of a loving hand
An outpost on a hill
Oh! What a happy little child,
Bringing home a daffodil!

Friendship is a binding tie
Of one soul to another
A gentle soft relationship
As children to father and mother
Raindrops sparkling on an autumn leaf,
An outpost on a hill
And oh! What a happy little child
Bringing home a daffodil!

Friendship is a happy thought
A warmness in your heart
Friends are those who understand
And friends will never part.
For two people very much in love
In a life that’s never still
And oh! What a happy little child
Bringing home a daffodil!

Friendship is a fragile thing
Give it love and care.
Remember that it’s beautiful
When love two people share
Cling not too tightly to that word
But your life it can fulfill
And oh! What a happy little child
Bringing home a daffodil!

Friendship is a loving thing
It adds to life a glow
The feeling that the little fawn
Has for the doe.
Comfort in the time of need
The moon shining on the hill
And oh! What a happy little child
Bringing home a daffodil!

Friendship is a flowering thing
That grows throughout the years.
Nourished by our thoughtful deeds,
Our memories and our tears
It may be fragile at the start
And like a healthy, sturdy plant
It blooms our whole life long

Friendship feels so warm inside
It heals the broken soul
The road is rough but at the end
A love we both shall know.
So warm the sadness wrapped around your heart
And let friendship shine through
And remember love and the daffodil
And how they both once grew.
