Valuable Friend



Certain people laugh at your sorrows
While other cannot bear to see you cry,
Some people may wipe away your tears?
While others cannot bear to see you smile,
Why do we avoid those who respect us?
Knowing they always are bedside us when needed most,
Why do we chase people who avoid us?
Although they hardly care and may never be there for you in such need
Value those who respect you and care
You never know what you had until its gone.
