Here we are my friend and mate,
Where have you been? It’s almost too late.
I’ve searched and searched from months to years,
I’m tired and weary, I’ve run out of tears.
You promised you’ll come at the turn of the tide,
But time flew by like a sharp lightening strike.
If you cannot stay, or wait a while,
Please can you explain why no smile?
If you have found a companion or bride,
I would be happy, I’d smile with pride.
Don’t be afraid to tell me the truth,
Friendship with you has no need for an excuse.
We’ve come a long way, through thick and thin,
We’ve fought so often, and you always win.
I hope she makes you happy and proud,
Better than me, pretty, rich and with clout.
I’ll miss the laughs in the middle of the night,
I’ll miss your shouts when I give you a fright.
The promise we made when our friendship was real,
of together crossing the oceans and plains.
Go on my friend, go on your way,
My tears will dry, but my heart will stay.
Until the day when that someone comes,
To take my hand and walk me home.
