10 years apart but he is still my best friend
My best friend is tall and strong
But he is as gentle as a love song
His roots go back to my childhood
And I'd take him everywhere if I could

My best friend would always cheer for me
He carried me up high for the world to see
He gave me sweet gifts every year
And stood through thunder storms with no fear

My best friend likes a world that is clean and green
And I must say, he was the greenest green I have ever seen
I miss when I would be out with him all day
I miss those moments he and I would play

My best friend is still standing strong
When I hug him I feel safe and like I belong
I visited him 10 years later and he is still my best friend
Still giving me sweet fruit that seem to never end

My best friend is a mighty tree
Now giving a home to birds, ants, and bees
And new children now play and make memories with him
My best friend is a mighty tree, and I love him
