It Speaks of Friendship

by Anonymous

When you open up this bottle
And read these words from me
Press your ear so gently to the top
And listen to the sea.

For the sea, it speaks of friendship
Such as ours – that lasts so long
That even Heaven’s nightingale
Can’t sing another song.

When you hear the waves a’ rolling
And you dream of ocean blue,
Know that I will always be there
When you need a friend that’s true.

If you need me, you can call me,
If you can’t, I’ll be right here
In this bottle, in this message,
With my love - I will be near.
