Respecting Our Friendships

‘Many Times Thicker Than Blood’

Dear friend, it is I, who has been by your side for years

Once we met, it was hard to part, we shared laughs plus tears

Not on the same life paths but we respected one another

Getting money & priorities were on point because we both were mothers

Going out to get that money, sun up or sun down, stayed on the grind

It was funny how people thought you were a sista of mind

Rollin with the punches because I didn't know the fine print

Couple whispers in my ear, telling me to leave you behind

You weren't a good look, I should run fast, haul ass... sprint!

Never been the type to go off what others say

You were cool to me, never shady or foul play

It just all feel apart went you switched up & became brand new

Excited you made it out the struggle but I helped you threw

Purchased a new boy toy so I guess your nose turned up

Losing me is when you realized you had messed up

God Shows Us Truth in Many Ways

Just to say you had a man but he's none of that

A bond was broken but sad you're okay with that

I will always be here because I know you regret that

I was never jealous, I'm too polished for that

Tables were turned & its a shame you dealing with that

I hope you get back on track, knowing you're better than that

Friendship by Ann Landers

"Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses." — Ann Landers

Mistakes are made, we both have agreed

I just want you to be happy in life & to exceed

Loyalty in people is rare to come across

Years of friendship, put in time, like a boss

I feel you have fully understood what a friend is about

Sticking with you until the end, guarantee, no doubt

They see me,

They see you,

They see we,

Something that'll never change...
