Be a good friend

 

Cry.

 

When the harsh words hit my ears.

 

When what was simple turns to tears.

 

When there is no friend in the world.

 

When life seems in a whirl.

 

When being alone is all I know.

 

When it gets harder to let go.

 

Smile.

 

When someone offers a helping hand.

 

When someone else might really understand.

 

When darkness turns to light.

 

There will be no fright tonight.

 

Compassion is all it takes.
