Friends within Strangers
We live in a world that is full of friends,
There are many that we have yet to meet.
Our journey through life has many bends,
And around some we will find one to greet.
A stranger can hide a new friend within,
With a chance to learn about who they are.
From that, your journey as friends can begin,
And, with them, you could travel far.
Every dawn brings to us new light,
To help guide our way into tomorrow,
And a new friend could come into sight,
To bring joy or to ease our sorrow.
Perhaps they need you to help them to walk,
Or maybe they could help your troubled mind.
But if we could just find the time to talk,
Then friends within strangers we could find.
