Special Friend – Written Friday 17th February 1995 (Aged 19)

Special Friend

you are a part of me
i hope you realise that
not in a sexual way
just a part of my life
always there,
to give me direction
an extra line of sight
making everything alright

i thought about you,
not being there today
i could not comprehend
after all,
you are such a special friend
always easing the pain
i hope i do the same

you are a part of me
i hope you always will be
i am sure you will
i am sure of how we feel
but that is way out of sight
i reckon we that will have to wait
for another life

i am happy,
with things as they are
they are okay, they are alright
my special friend
the way we work together
the messages that we send
living these days
my special friend
