A FRIEND OF MINE

A FRIEND OF MINE

Once upon a time”
The beginning of a tale
“It all began”, or “it started when”; are beginnings to use as well
“Happily ever after”; words meant to last
But the ending told my story- as I relive the past
“To love, honor, and cherish”- “have and hold, friends forever”
A vow between people, or an oath before God-commitment made together
“To whom it may concern”–all of those involved
“Please accept my apologies”; until matter is resolved
“Handle with care”, “do not tear, bend or fold”-
A heart is just as fragile and worth it’s weight in gold 
“Do not remove” what’s personal from you to anyone
For they may “use it against you” – “after all is said and done”
“Listen very carefully” to what others have to say
“Pay close attention,” to who’s around and what could get in your way
“Sorry to bother you”…. is what you did to me-
“Please to meet you” is how it use to be
“What seems to be the problem”–you ask?  Is it me or is it you? 
I “followed all the instructions” and tips and hints too….
But “one thing leads to another” but another is what you found
By asking “How can I help you?” or “be of service”… when I was not around
“In sickness and in health”- you treated me just the same
You “do not open” yourself up to me but want me to play your game.
“Do unto others as they do unto you”- “Forever, till the end of time”-
“That’s all Folks” — seems to do.
From cheating, and telling lies, to mental abuse
“Please forgive me,” – “Baby I love ya”…
“Please excuse me”  but there is no use–
Love is a “Special offer” so sometimes, you must “open other end”
Keep “this side up” and “do not break” that bond of being a friend
If you break the “valueable gift inside” of love, friendship, or lessons learned-
The memories posted of what was once free,
Will be paid by you, if returned
“All’s well, end’s well”…if not, Oh well–
But let me “thank you for your time”
Sincerly,– I was to you….when you were a friend of mine…
