44

I woke up in pain, brewed java, took pain killer
Lily came into the office and sat beside me
Turned on the Music, “Take the load off, Mandy”
Stared out into the darkness
Thought I am the only person awake in the world
“Close your eyes, girl, look inside, girl”
Felt a chill in the air, turned on the heater
Remembered drug days, the good and bad…

“It’s hard to find a friend” (Tom Petty)

but when you do, it’s like a treasure

that will never leave you

that will understand you

that will accept you

that will not lord it over you

that will walk beside you

through thick and thin
