The Friendship Plant

You cant buy friendship

In a bargain basement store

It wouldn't sit upon the scales

And the quality would be poor

It isn't something you can wrap

Or tie with a pretty bow

In fact it takes a lot of effort

For this fragile plant to grow


But with an awesome lot of work

And some tender loving care

This plant will reach a decent size

And stand to blossom there

Then it should be capable

Of taking quite hard knocks

Even more amazing

It will grow between two rocks

So having done the spade work

Sit back for the reward

The blossom of this friendship plant

Created by the Lord

A blossom that will never fade

Whilst watered and tended true

There are millions of other blossoms

But this one grows for me and you
