Hands Of Friendship

Filed under: H — jacquirichards @ 11:04 am



I offer you my hand,

Hopin’ you’d understand,

Before I knew it,

I was spun into a promised land.

Does it matter if my hand is black or white ?

I only hope that you’ll hold on tight,

And that you’ll take me off in flight,

So everything will be alright.


Hands of friendship, reached out to you,

Whenever you need a friend, as people often do,

Come put your arm in mine,

And very soon, all will be quite fine, as two.

Hands of friendship, through a closed door,

So you won’t feel hopeless anymore,

Hands of friendship, in the dark,

If I light a candle, friendship will be the spark.




Hands of friendship, together we’ll draw a crowd,

To lift us higher, and catch love, out – flowed,

Through out – stretched fingers, will blow the wind,

On it carried kisses and best wishes, from a friend.

In a hand of friendship, a gentle touch,

To wipe aways your tears, so you won’t cry so much,

A bunch of flowers in my clutch,

A tickle to make you giggle, as such.




In a hand of friendship, I will hold you,

Keep you safe and warm, so you won’t feel the cold, too,

If the two of us begin, regardless of the colour of their skin,

Then before very long, a million others may join in.

Before we know it, we’ll all be unchained,

In a string of daisies, long enough so the whole world will be


Soon, in a hand of friendship, we’ll all be lifted up,

In a union that starts with a single buttercup.

Chorus … (repeat to fade).
