This one wrote itself while I was sewing quilt blocks on Tuesday.
Friends will come and friends will go
And sometimes there’s nothing left to show
Of loyalty, fairness and devotion.
Friendships are a lot like love affairs.
You fall in deep and might not be aware
That the other is feeling a totally different emotion.
Months go by or maybe years
before your eyes open and begin to clear
And you wonder why such a big commotion
Over little things you once accepted as “everyday”
And thought of them only as just “their way,”
But now irritate and seem to point to your own promotion
Of distance and escape and a little peace
And the tide is turning towards friendship’s release
As the storm clouds clear o’er a tranquil ocean.
