Heart to Heart

A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world.

~Leo Buscaglia

We’re arm in arm when we’re strolling down the sidewalk
Laughter fills the phone line every time that we talk
Smiles and tears alike we share
Sunshine seems to follow us everywhere
When we’re together, hearts seem so light
But when they are broken
You make it all right

I’ve never had a friend like you
So easy to get so close to
Distance cannot separate us
We love and understand each other too much
To let time or change break us apart
We’re not just hand in hand
We’re heart to heart.

Now time has come between us
Change and troubles too
But you have not forgotten me
And I will never forget you
It’s true some friends do come and go
They are the people you think you know
It’s true some friends break you apart
And hand you the pieces of your own broken heart.

There are some things that are made to last
Some things are forever, while others will pass
But I am sure as the sky is blue
That one thing I will have forever
Is you.
