Packing up the dreams God planted
In the fertile soil of you
I can't believe the hopes He's granted
Means a chapter of your life is through

But we'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

And with the faith and love God's given
Springing from the hope we know
We will pray the joy you live in
Is the strength that now you show

We'll keep you close as always
It won't even seem you've gone
'Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

And friends are friends forever
If the Lord's the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
'Cause the welcome will not end
Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

To live as friends

Though it's hard to let you go
In the Father's hands we know
That a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

No a lifetime's not too long
To live as friends

    Friends, true friends are with you no matter what. You could move miles apart from each other but if you are true friends those miles will not keep you from being friends. And if one of you happens to pass on to the other side then you still will be friends because you carry their memory with you always.

    This was a song that as a small college choir we sang for graduation. My high school classmate was in the same college i was and we both were in the choir. Though we were not best friends in either high school or college we were friends. Even after we graduated from college together we still exchanged letters and christmas cards. Just last year my friend lost her stuggle with cancer but she is still my friend.

    If god and jesus puts some one in your life as a friend (husband or wife ,not unisex marage,) they will be loyal to you no matter what happens they will pray for you when you ask and sometimes even if you don't i know someday god might give me a life mate if he don't i don't care because god and jesus are my best friends for ever (literally forever)
