A Friend Is Needed



When you sit down to reminisce
About all the things you have done
Can you help but long for what you missed
By choosing to travel alone?

Do you ever stand still on your quiet path
When you have a thought to share
And know that it would have made someone laugh
If only someone was there?

Have you acquired a bruise or sctratch
On your body or in your heart
And a helping hand you need to catch
But the nearest is much too far

The plans you have made for your life to soar
Have indeed come true
You're living in style never wanting for more
With no one to share it with you

Solitude is sometimes a need
To take time and pray
But mistake not alone as okay to be
When there is much you can do and say

So when you sit dow to reminisce
About all the things you have done
Let the list of who and what you missed
Be the shortest one
