My True Friend

Joy dueland

Without a parent, Mom or Dad,
it's not that good to be,
but God hears us and fills the gap
with love and unity.
He shows us how to love someone
when perhaps we don't agree;
and then we reap just what we've sown,
the product—harmony.
Sunday's not the only day
I ask God for His help.
In fact, He's never far away.
Those two books the Bible, and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy . on the shelf
explain and mean so much to me
and teach me many things,
like keeping peace within myself.
What happiness this brings!
Even though it seems sometimes
my friends don't want to share,
I trust in God, my best, true friend,
because He's always there!
