Bette Midler – My One True Friend lyrics

And now, is it too late to say
How you made my life so different in your quiet way?
I can see the joy in simple things,
A sunlit sky and all the songs we used to sing.

I have walked and I have I prayed.
I could forgive and we could start again.
In the end,
You are my one true friend.

For all, all the times you closed your eyes,
Allowing me to stumble or to be surprised,
By life, with all it's twists and turns.
I made mistakes, you always knew that I would learn.

And when I left, it's you who stayed.
You always knew that I'd come home again.
In the end,
You are my one true friend.

Though love may break, it never dies.
It changes shape, through changing eyes.
What I denied, I now can see.
You always were the light inside of me.

I know, I know, I know, I know it was you.

I have walked and I have I prayed.
I could forgive and we could start again.
In the end, you are my one true friend.

My one true friend.
I always, always knew,
I always knew that it was you,
My one true friend.

    This is the song of my relationship with my mother, Christene C. Garner. This is also a song of my relationship with my best friend, Vivian Cannady Waters. My mother handed me a vhs, saying, "This reminds me of you and Vivian". She wrote on it "BEST FRIENDS". I treasure my mother's thoughtfulness valueing the vhs and her handwriting, "BEST FRIENDS" since she died May 1994. My mother died knowing what others don't know. She died knowing she was my #1 best friend.
