In this grand world of our's;
The soft, white snow, the gentle rain,
The birds, the trees and flowers.
I'm thankful for the many friends
I've met along life's way;
I'm thankful for their deeds of love
And the words they've had to say.
I'm thankful for one special friend
Who means so much to me;
A friend that I can always trust
And she will faithful be.
I've tested and tried her friendship
In many and various ways;
And she has proved to be my friend
Through dark and sunny days.
It was springtime when I met her
This girl I wish you knew;
With her sunny disposition
And her friendship firm and true.
I loved her that first day we met
I love her still the same;
She has made my life much happier
Virginia is her name.
