People need people and friends need friends

And we all need love for a full life depends

Not on vast riches or great acclain

Not on success or on worldy fame

But in just knowing that someone cares

And holds close in their thoughts and prayers

For only the knowledge that we’re understood

Makes everyday living feel WONDEFULLY GOOD

And we rob ourselves of life’s greatest need

When we “lock up our hearts” and fail to heed

The outstretched hand reaching to find

A kindred spirit whose heart and mind

Are lonely and longing to somehow share

Our joys and sorrows and to make us aware

That life’s completeness and richness depends

On the things we share with our loved ones and friends
