My Lover, My Friend

From the time I met you
and all my life through
through thick and through thin
you’ve been my lover and my friend

When times were hard and I couldn’t cope
you’re the one that encouraged me not to mope
you were there for me to the end
you’ve been my lover and my friend

Through lonely and gloomy days
with your smile I was always amazed
I looked forward to seeing you around the bend
you’ve been my lover and my friend

I’ve grown to love you each and every day
no matter what obstacles come my way
because on you I can depend
you’ve been my lover and my friend

With the warmth I find in your heart
and the loneliness I feel when we’re apart
and the beauty you have within
thank you for being my lover and my friend
