What are friends for?
They’ll stand behind you
Whatever you do,
And cheer you on
When the race is on!

What are friends for?
They’ll take you out,
And listen to you pout
So as to ease the pain
When she leaves you again!

What are friends for?
To pour you a strong drink
When you can no longer think
When all you can do is cry….
Cause your best friend… just died!

What are friends for?
But to call on your cell
“Is your date going well?
This is your way out
If you need to bail out!”

What are friends for?
But to laugh and smile
And talk for a while
So pick up the phone – Call me!
When you need, some company!

This is something I read this past week at Open Mic at Whispers, this is for my friends…
those that are here, and those that aren’t.
