"Oil and perfume make the heart glad,
and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel."
Like fragrant oils and perfumes rare,
That soothe and calm with scented air,
A true friend's counsel brings relief,
In times of doubt and pain and grief.
Their words an ointment to the soul,
A balm that makes the broken whole,
Their sweetness like a healing balm,
That brings a sense of soothing calm.
When life is tough and trials weigh,
And we can't seem to find our way,
A friend's advice can light the path,
And guide us to a better path.
So let us cherish those we love,
And seek their counsel from above,
For in their wisdom we will find,
A balm that heals the heart and mind.
