Friends come in and others move on,
not all of them last the day.
But that’s quite right it’s transient,
only those few will stay.
Friendship is more what we put out,
we get back what we give.
For those that cannot give as much,
will find a new place to live.
Friendship is also a two way street,
a sort of byway if you like.
The traffic passes up and down,
feeding in when it’s right.
Friendships best when it’s equal,
although at different times.
When we put our trust in another,
it’s like they are held in mind.
But when it’s take and no return,
it won’t ever last for long.
Friendship needs nourishment too,
to feel that it really belongs.
And so my friends I thank you now,
for staying by my side.
For the others that went on their way,
Please do enjoy the ride.
