Talking

Talking

Talking helps the people see
Just who we are and what may be
Both good and bad will come one day
Revealed by what we have to say

And yet the lies may never end
We’ll search forever for that friend
Who speaks the truth and speaks it well
Who wants to help and not to sell

No more excuses, it’s too late
The worldly systems, far from great
What lies beneath?  Who are we now?
Which truths will be revealed, and how?

Think on the happy times now lost
Pursuit of dreams will have its cost
And talk with friends, for we may find
That talking helps to heal the blind

Be A Friend

Be A Friend

It never costs to be a friend
It’s give and take until the end
Some times are hard but some are fun
The good times, only just begun

A call away on any day
True friends just know they’ll find a way
With simple trust in who we are
A friendly word can go so far

Be kind then whilst we’re here below
We all have faults, and far to go
Forgive each day and help friends grow
Some things, for sure, you’ll never know

And come the end of this short life
With all the doubts and hatred rife
We’ll be so glad, if in the end
We took the time to be a friend
