Dear Friend

Dear Friend,

I hope all is well

It must be
for I haven’t heard from you
for ages

If it were the opposite
I’d now be reading
monologues of complaints
about how the world’s unfair

I’m writing just to let you know, though,
that if you ever need me
if things get worse
I’ll be there for you
ready to listen

For I know how it feels
when you’re left alone
no helping hand to hold
no shoulder to cry on
no one to talk to
when you need it the most

I know how it feels
when everyone is just too busy
to find 5 minutes for you
to listen to you
and assure it would all be OK

I know it all

That’s why
you can count on me
whenever you need
a friend.
