A sweet, dear, old but newly recovered friend of mine from high school is in the midst of a tragedy that I can’t seem to wrap my head around. In the midst of this tragedy these words from a long ago song popped into my head and there they’ve been swirling…waiting to come out.
Make New Friends

Make new friends, but keep the old.
One is silver, the other is gold.
A circle is round, it has no end.
That’s how long, I will be your friend.
A fire burns bright, it warms the heart.
We’ve been friends, from the very start.
You have one hand, I have the other.
Put them together, We have each other.
You help me, and I’ll help you
and together we will see it through.
Across the land Across the sea
Friends forever We will always be.
I don’t have much to give my friend right now, except love and friendship. I hope she knows how much her friends, both old and new, love her.
A circle is round. It has no end. That’s how long you will be my friend. With love.
