I used to think that trust was a given Caring was a must Then I woke up to the world we live in Friendships are formed on false perceptions Angels turn into misconceptions Promises are worth less than dirt Feelings often hurt
With the truth in hand I would like to thank you For being kind For wanting to know my mind For supporting me In these dark and lonely times
In a world where "friendships" Blow away like dust I would like to offer you My helping hand My caring heart My faded trust
I hope you accept these In hope that we are, True Friends
This poem was actually written for two very special people in my life. They helped me and wanted to listen to me when the world was dark and nobody wanted to know my darkness. I thought I had an angel ("friend") that would help me through all my pain. But she fled and left me alone. That just added to the pain. But then I discovered these two relatively new people who wanted to heal me and worry for me. They were true friends.
Beautifully written..I to have had my share of friends who took and took..and when it came time to give..they were no where to be found..No one seems to look beyond there own selves these days.You have done a wonderful job of putting it to words.
