A Friend Cut in Marble
When I wake you up as the morning dew comes falling
And mean to speak yet utter next to nothing
Never mind dear, it’s cos I need a friend in you.
When I seek your word on matters so wonted
And make you wonder if ever your idea is so wanted
Bear with me dear, it’s cos I need a friend in you.
When I make much fuss over many a trifle
And warn of dangers you yet cannot fathom
Take heed dear, it’s cos you have a friend in me.
When you need a friend to share your thoughts so dear
One that’ll tell you the truth in a world so dire
Run to me dear, cos I’m your friend so priceless.
