With Friends


(c) Friends, The Caterpillar Shivered, 2019

There are days we walk alone,
Quiet with no-one to speak to,
They seem to go on-and-on,
Like an never ending issue.
***
Those days are few,
Thanks to you,
We walk together,
Whatever the weather.
***
There are days we feel lonely,
No-one here but our thoughts,
And we doubt ourselves loudly,
And judge ourselves lots.
***
But you come along,
And we sing a song,
I’m not alone,
When you are home.
***
There are days we are sad,
The world keeps us blue,
Everything seems so dark,
And all we need is a spark.
***
That spark is you,
A friend who shines through,
With you my sadness ends,
Everything is better with friends.
