I’ve Often Wished To Have A Friend

I’ve often wished to have a Friend
With whom my sweetest hours to spend
To whom I safely might impart
Each wish and weakness of my heart
Who might in every sorrow share
And mingle with my grief a tear
For whom alone I wish to be
And who would only wish for me
And to secure my bliss for life
I’d wish that friend to be my Wife.
