In The End

Have you ever had a friend
who doesn’t understand –

You try and try…..
and try again…..
but it never seems to end.

You give a hint
or outright say!!

But they just turn
the other way
a bit too much cheek
if I had to say.

You try to chat
to say hello –
and ask about their day…
you do your bit - to be polite
but you know how it goes.

You send them cards
and trinkets too –
in the hope that they will smile
and maybe say Hello….

But you know how that goes
they just hide away
ignoring you
as they laugh with other ‘friends’.

So what is one to do?

You sit and sulk
and try to understand –
because they tell you
that you’re still a friend.

You count the times
that you’ve talked to them
then …..wait a moment
how many times….
have they talked to you –
1 and 2 and 3 and 10
wow 100 from you
but I only count 1 or 2 from them.

But that’s okay
because they’ll make it up
when your birthday comes along –
they’ll send a card… that says hello
because they know that makes you smile.
But in the end you get a 2-word text –
then it’s you who doesn’t understand.

They say it doesn’t matter,
so why worry so much!

Ah, but that’s the thing you see
it’s because you care –
and they’ve just never….


This thought could go on and on…
there’s so many things to say
but then again
they’ve already been said
so many times before.

But who can blame them
those wee poor souls –
with their heads buried so far in
and choose to ignore
their friends
when they just don’t understand
that one good hand
makes one good friend –
in the end!
