Your Friend

Barbara Dunston 1951 (Warrenton)

Don't cry ,nor shed a tear
Because friend is always near;
Please don't focus on who's right or wrong.
Your friend is here to help you, not to do you harm.
Life is too short to be depressed,
And life is too precious not to care less;
Realizing there's no place to hide,
Talk to God and he will abide.
So, stop pushing buttons, that's not there,
And start leaning on your friend that's always near.
You have to convince your heart.
You want to, not to depart.
Don't forget you're someone special.
And don't take it lightly, but take it personal.
Please, let go of the past and think about your future,
Life is full of treasure and venture.
So, lean on your friend, it's okay.
Listen and take heed to what your friend does say.
