The solitary bird sings
On this quiet and sunny day,
I have everything I need
Except friends that could not stay.

The life cycle trundles on
Auld Lang Syne has been sung,
We toast a new beginning
As the new day has just begun.

I have travelled arduous miles
To arrive at this stage in my life,
And I wonder if it has been worth it,
Going through all the trouble and strife.

Without the friends I had in my life,
The journey would not have been so worthwhile,
My friends stood by me and helped me
And always greeted me with a smile

A life Without good friends
Makes the world a harsher place,
Cherish each one dearly forever,
For they can never be replaced.
