Life is like a bouquet
And friendship like a flower
That blooms and grows in beauty
With the sunshine and the shower
And lovely are the blossoms
That are tended with great care
By those who work unselfishly
To make the place more fair.
And like the bouquet’s blossoms
Friendships flower grows more sweet
When watched and tended carefully
By those we know and meet
And like sunshine adds new fragrance
And raindrops play their part,
Joy and sadness add new beauty
When there’s friendship in the heart.
And if the seed of friendship
Is planted deep and true
And watched with understanding,
Friendships will bloom for you.
