Friends

Make a friend. Share ideas and dreams with your friend.
Be there for your friend, no matter what.
Be the shelter in rough weather. Be the anchor in angry seas.
Be the celebration when you’re the only candle; be the friend you’ve always needed.

Do what you must to be the friend. Your friend may do the same.

If not, make a friend. Share ideas and dreams with your friend.
Be there for your friend, no matter what.
Be the shelter in rough weather. Be the anchor in angry seas.
Be the celebration when you’re the only candle; be the friend you’ve always needed.

One day, a friend will do the same. And that will make all
the failings of fictional friends worth the wait. You have to believe.
If that friend never comes, the wait was fiction, and so were the friends.
