Have you ever found a friend that just touches you deep inside?
You feel a special bond that you simply cannot hide.
You give them a piece of your heart, a view of what you are,
Sometimes they live close to you, sometimes they live too far.
It really doesn't matter, you were friends from the start,
Soon you realize their memory is a piece of your heart.
You feel like they're an angel, placed here just for you,
You are always amazed at the sweet things that they do.
You don't have to see them or talk to them every day,
To know that God has sent them in His own special way.
How else could you explain, this friendship and deep love?
It must be an angel, sent from heaven above.
How can you love someone you've never really seen?
The question you may ask, Is this just a dream?
Soon you realize, your feelings are quite sincere.
Your friendship will continue year after year.
Funny when you talk you both seem to disagree,
I think you're the angel and you think it is me.
When you really look at it, you have to smile and say,
The touching of our souls has taken place again today.
Tonight as I said my prayers, I prayed for my friend,
I could not hardly wait until we talked once again.
For God showed me the answer, it was really quite simple,
A soul never sees a face, it would not recognize a dimple.
The feeling of love one feels for another friend,
The feeling of wanting to be with each other again.
Is the inner joy, that God places there,
The love one feels on top of heaven's stairs.
So if you are lucky and you have found such a friend,
Remember it is God, who lives deep within.
It is God's wishes, to one day look to see,
Angels Hugging Angels, perhaps it's you and me.
