Friend To The End

Friend To The End

I will not always agree with you
Even though we are best of friends
And there’s so much we’ve been through
So many narrow paths, so many bends.

I couldn’t put into words if I tried
How blessed I am to call you mine
Knowing that no matter the wind or the tide,
You’ll always be at the other end of the line

I’ve known a false friend or two
Who were never there for the unpleasant stuff
They ran away leaving me no clue
As to where they went when things got rough

But you, my dear, are the exception
You’ve neither faltered nor from my side strayed
You lavish me with your constant affection
As if it was for that sole reason you were made

With your golden mind, you motivate me
With your selfless actions, you have me inspired
Through your keen insight, I see things clearly
Of your vibrant nature, I never get tired

You alone know what buttons to press
To rile me up or to calm me down
You know when I mean ‘no’ even though I say ‘yes’
You know how to make me smile even when I’d rather frown.

So yes, I may not always agree with you
But you will always be my best friend
Because there are some seasons we’ve yet to go through
And I will love you to the very end.

    I read through with love
    in a way comely like a dove
    and lovely like my bosom friend
    with whom we disagree as we tend
    but friends we remain until the end
