Friend in Need
I think I lost a friend today,
I know no reason why.
It’s just she seemed to fade away
not even a last sigh.
I don’t think that it’s what I said
my words could only please.
Maybe she felt that where I led
she couldn’t go with ease.
My pathways take in many things
that I take in my stride.
But maybe where my music sings,
from this she’d rather hide?
But friends in need are friends in deed
and I will not turn back.
If others follow where I lead
they’ll share what’s in my sack.
I hope my friend’s not disappeared
and very soon will show
that she can still be friends with me
wherever I may go.
She doesn’t have to trace my step
or share in every deed
for losing her would make me sad,
I’m now the friend in need.
