I want to hold you against my chest,
And protect you from all the rest.
Hold you until your teardrops dry,
Make you smile and not cry.
I know that you’ve been hurt so deep,
It hurts me so, to see you weep.
I wish that I could take your pain,
Heal your heart and free your brain.
This whole thing is very rough,
But I know that you can be tough.
Lean on me if you need to,
Until you’re not feeling blue.
I’ll be right here until the end,
I love you lots, my sweet friend.
Your fake smile holds no joy,
such a mean and nasty boy.
You call us the best of friends,
but the bullying just never ends.
As a friend you’re just bad.
Talking to you makes me mad.
Friends should comfort you when you cry.
They do not ridicule your reasons why.
We’ve been friends for many a year,
but you’ve seldom brought me cheer.
So, the time has come for me to say,
my former friend, please go away.
My heart would break if I lost you,
What once was bright would turn blue.
We talk and talk for hours each day,
You shine a light when my mood is grey.
We’ve never been in the same place,
Yet you’ve brought many smiles to my face.
Bestie, brother, choose one or two,
I need you here, forever me and you.
Darkness blotted out my light,
my body gripped with fright.
I had to leave that awful place,
teardrops dripping down my face.
I stumbled and fumbled along the wall,
until I heard the sweetest call.
His shining hand created the spark,
to lead me right out of the dark.
When times get tough, friendship can be,
the rock that supports both you and me.
