Friendship

Friends make our days complete
They also give you a happy treat
They also defend you in times of fights
Like a rope that connects and holding it tight

They convey special attention to a friend
And a lot of worship for them to send
Friends are great companionships
So nothing can describe noxious friendship

Friends bloom like beautiful flowers
Communicating with them for many hours
Dearest Friends, please show us love
For God will send you a glorious dove
