My Best friendMy best friend says I'm hard to be around.And that's just fine with me.Sometimes he can be grumpy too.So we take it by degrees.Truth be told. I don't mind.I appreciate that honesty.So few do these days.We want to be told the best.Not that we irritate or nag.We don't want people telling us.How we are annoying, dumbOr fat!Now me I'm a simple man.No smoke and mirrors here.If you hurt me or piss me off.I speak up quite loud and clear.My friend does too.I respect that, cause it's real.Sometimes I phone and he seemsput out.So I hang up and call back later.I'm no hater. That's what true friend means.To know all there is to know and still like you.Because sometimes we all suck.And that's the truth.But I hope that he knows the specailways he has touched my life.He was there when mother diedAnd when I divorced both my wives.A steady constant. Supportive till the end.Know this sir. I appreciateall that you have done.Standing next to me. Unwavering.Commitment like I've never seen.
