Who’s Going To Be My Friend

Do you have a true friend when it’s needed??

 

WHO’S GOING TO BE MY FRIEND

 

Who’s going to be my friend

When I’m at my wit’s end

And reaching for a hand

That knows what I’ve endured

And where I have been

Who’s going to be my friend

When I’m unemployed

And don’t have enough money

To even buy the cheapest toy

Who’s going to be my friend

When I’m feeling down

Sitting alone in my private space

Not making a peep or sound

And a frown has melted to my face

Who’s going to be my friend

When I become sick or ill

And can’t do anything

Other than just lie still

Who’s going to be my friend

When my car has broken down

On the side of the road

With no one for miles around

In the middle of nowhere

And my nervousness grows

Who’s going to be my friend

When I need to talk

And feeling annoyed

Like the screeching from a chalkboard

Needing some fresh air

And going for a walk

But would you meet me there?

Who’s going to be my friend

When I have no place to stay

And trying to make it alone

Each and everyday

With no place to call home

Who’s going to be my friend

When my significant other leaves

Or a loved one dies

Will you be able to feel my need?

As I feel barely alive

With deep rooted pain inside

That is circling me

Who’s going to be my friend

When I have nothing

That I can actually give

Other than simply be

A very good friend

Would this be enough

To survive and thrive until the end

Especially when times get rough

And my head is in a spin

Or a broken heart

From what I’ve experienced

So, the question remains

And is unchanged

No matter the situation

Or where I have been

Whether I have done wrong

And have made amends

Or have been great to you

From beginning to end

Despite the circumstances

I’ve been in

So, who’s going

So, who’s going

To be my friend
