Poetry: Friends


If you have to cry- just cry,

Don’t hold it back, don’t be ashamed,

I’m crying too.  Tears can’t be tamed.

All different now, life rips and tears,

We are connected, and I still care.

If you have to cry- just cry,

Get it all out, this world’s gone mad,

Makes us weary, makes us sad,

Time was we laughed, talked all the time,

I had your back, and you had mine,

Two friends, two friends, bond with no end.

If you have to cry- just cry.

I’m crying too. Don’t you know I still love you,

I am still here, I’ll soothe your fear.

What we have shared, is what we are,

No matter when, or near or far,

I’ll cry with you until we smile,

I’ll help you walk another mile,

Remember this, your hand’s in mine,

In tears, in joy, through end of time

Friends through sun and friends through rain,

Cry yes, but we will smile again
