Friendly Lamentation

friendshipFriendly Lamentation

It may come as a surprise to you
But when we became friends
I thought you meant it

I have never been half-way
About friends
They are all close
Or not friends at all

So I took what you said
At face value

We were to be friends

Pinky pals for all eternity

I would take a bullet for a friend
And you thought that presumptuous

I would be there 24/7 for a friend
And you thought that audacious

When did you change the definition
Of friend to someone you called
When you needed a ride
