So priceless, rich and rare;
You gave to someone you didn't know,
With a heart that was willing to share.
The gift that God has given you,
You sweetly shared with me;
Never asking anything in return,
The gift you gave was free.
Time has passed and with this gift,
Has grown a friendship true;
For if God gave me anything in this,
He gave me a sister in you.
You reached to me with open arms,
With grace and abounding love;
Sharing the gift ... my Sister and Friend,
You are my "Gift", from God above.
