My Friend with the many smiles; so kind, loving & gracious.
Always there to lend a hand, your heart is ever so spacious.
Inside you, there's a battle of emotion...loss of life, heartbreaks & total commotion. Your instinct is to numb, ignore, delete all pain.....which is common for most, who have walked in the RAIN. For you my friend, so special & true....your life has provided you nothing but agony, making you turn so bitter, so blue. I'm here to remind you, with love & support....THAT'S ALL SO UNTRUE....For life is not simple, pain free & all great...., booze, smoke, pills & dope are providing you an undeniable FATE......My role as your friend has taken on a whole new name....I'm here to remind you, through cards, text & calls THERE'S NO ONE TO BLAME....For you my dear friend, always a lesson to learn. Never acceptance of reality, just bridges to burn. I say what I say, because I believe in my heart, there's only ONE YOU & from this life you will part. Rolling the dice, is only a game.....you my Dear friend, you have a NAME....Son, Brother, Dad & Friend are a few.....of the titles you hold....reminding you daily grows ever so old. If only you could see yourself through my eyes; you'd stop this charade & believing your own lies. Stop the abuse of the body & soul, respect & honor YOURSELF completely & whole. My prayers will not stop, I WILL KEEP HATING THE "DOPE".....for as long as you're here...I will ALWAYS HAVE HOPE!
