The Friend That is Always There
I'm the friend who's always there
I'll do my best without worry or care
I'm the one on which you can depend I
t's a standing offer that I will not rescind
But I wonder is everything copacetic
Or do you view me as another headache
What I mean to say, is this offer returned
Or is my time of need viewed as a burden
It has become quite obvious that this is the case
Even though when we meet I see your happy face
Emotional conflict races around my head and heart
To look out for number one I may have to start...

Christine-  This is an interesting poem,  The unfortunate truth is that friendship always seem to come 

                 with baggage.  I guess we all need to accept each other where we are, in the moment, and

                 enjoy the challenges.

It's a standing offer that I will not rescind
