I used to think a friend
was the one that knew me best
that knew me for the longest time.
I used to think a friend
was someone I could tell
all my secrets to.

I used to think like a child.

Now I’m grown
and I see
A friend
would never deceive me
for personal gain
would never break my spirit for sport
A friend
would stand by me
as a reminder
I am not alone.
