If God had given me the chance,
To search the world and find;
A very dear and special friend,
That I could choose for mine ---
I'd look for all the qualities,
Like strength and honesty;
I'd seek a caring, sharing heart,
And true integrity.
I'd find someone who's not afraid,
To share their hopes and dreams;
Who then in turn would listen,
As I share the same thing.
I'd look for one with honor,
With laughter in their soul;
Who gives more than they ever take,
Who brings me joy untold.
Then I'd turn to the Father,
And I'd ask if I was through.
He'd say that I could stop searching,
For I've found that friend in you.
