Friendship

Girlfriends on the grass with leaves
Friendship

Dear friend, I pray thee,
if thou wouldst be proving.
Thy strong regard for me,
Make me no vows.
Lip-service is not loving;
Let thy faith speak for thee.

Swear not to me that nothing can divide us,
So little such oaths mean,
But when distrust and envy creep beside us,
Let them not come between.

Say not to me the depths of thy devotion
Are deeper than the sea;
But watch, lest doubt or some unkind emotion
Embitter them for me.

Vow not to love me ever and forever,
Words are such idle things,
But when we differ in opinions, never
Hurt me by little stings.

I'm sick of words, they are so lightly spoken,
And spoken are but air.
I'd rather feel thy trust in me unbroken
Than list to thy words so fair.

If all the little proofs of trust are heeded,
If thou art always kind,
No sacrifice, no promise will be needed
To satisfy my mind.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

"You Needed Me"

written by Randy Goodrum 

I cried a tear

You wiped it dry

I was confused

You cleared my mind

I sold my soul

You bought it back for me

And held me up

And gave me dignity

Somehow you needed me

You gave me strength

To stand alone again

To face the world

Out on my own again

You put me high

Upon a pedestal

So high that I could

Almost see eternity

You needed me,

you needed me

And I can't believe it's you

I can't believe it's true

I needed you

And you were there

And I'll never leave

Why should I leave?

I'd be a fool'Cause I've finally found

Someone who really cares

You held my hand

When it was cold

When I was lost

You took me home

You gave me hope

When I was at the end

And turned my lies

Back into truth again

You even called me friend

You gave me strength

To stand alone again

To face the world

Out on my own again

You put me high

Upon a pedestal

So high that I could

Almost see eternity

You needed me,

you needed me

You needed me,

you needed me
