My only wish for you, my friend,
Is that these times would never end.
He loves you and he’s good to you:
And I can see you love him, too.
He loves your daughter just as well,
And after all the years of hell
You’ve been through: lonely, scared and poor,
It’s not too much I’m asking for.
I have one other hope, today,
Which is, as you go on your way
Through all your life’s new open doors,
Just know: this friend
