A Friend



You came as a stranger, I let you in

Instantly you became a friend


You became a friend,not just in the passing

But a friend everlasting


There are things friends do, we don’t always understand

But they had to be done for the time at hand


You think they were done with not a care

But they were done out of need and prayer


We think they’re against us, but really they’re not

They seem to have been done in haste,

but really there was a lot of thought


It’s bad when things happen to end a friendship

But if both can’t understand then the friendship

was just superficial to begin with

I hope you see what I;m trying to say

I have not turned my friend away



I do not become a friend

Just for something to happen to make it end


A friend to me is a friend from the heart

And if the friendship ends, it’s on the other one’s part
