Dear Ashley, this is for you
To my best friend.
I won’t know where you are all the time
I won’t always know when you aren’t fine
I won’t know at which second you would be crying.
I won’t know exactly what it is you’re thinking
Despite all that and probably more
I want to be there when you trip and fall
Cos you are there when I falter
Showing me what’s wrong
And what I should alter
So please realise this simple thing:
It’s 4 in the afternoon
Or 5 in the morning
Swotting away for an exam I’m having
Or immersed in my alcohol
Dancing and partying
You just have to ask.
And I’ll be there.
((( I didn’t think my last two sentences required rhyming. :p )))
