Fair Weather Friend

Thanks for asking
my fair weather friend.
Life has been tough
but it is starting to mend.
Nerves of steel
gave way to ones of straw.
Had to hide
from everyone I saw.
Luckily for you
that you never bothered to call,
you did not have
to witness my downfall.
It took a while
to hit rock bottom.
Now I know things
that will never be forgotten.
Like the people who cared
and the love that they would send.
Then there was
the like of you, my fair weather friend.

  1. Ohhhhhh…that’s gooooood.
    Soooooo goooood ¡¿¡
    Had to cut loose 6 of them..just over a year ago now.
    And I’m so much stronger now – I was being strengthened by their absence
    while going through the bad times.

    Brilliant write !
