Stay with me in good or bad times. Be a friend.


 

I Had Friends
 
I had friends when the address was 902
I had friends when it wasn't rent that was due
 
I had friends when the parties rocked my place
I had friends when roaches was west that way
 
I had friends when health was a hundred percent
I had friends paying mortgage and not low rent
 
I had friends when I juggled eight red balls
I had friends who chirpped I would never fall
 
I had friends laughing hearty and singing with me
I had friends way up in this society
 
I had friends calling me on everyday
I had friends calling me with nothing to say
 
Loneliness but the pigeons and whew they stink
Water in my eyes and acid round' the sink
 
Friends not calling; no fancy social fares
Ooh..Ooh…I can't wait to get out of here
I had friends…

Carol, i love this piece; it is quite inspiring and one can learn a lot in it.
I had friends when health was a hundred percent
I had friends paying mortgage and not low rent
It is beautiful.

Carol, my sweet lady, does indeed have friends both far and wide. Stepping into your World and sharing your stories, is a true honour which is guaranteed to make everyone smile. With your quick wit and survivor spirit, you are a writer of merit; an International treasure.

Powerful, moving and unmistaken crafted by a writer with extraordinary skill.
