Best Friends

Best Friends


Now we are completely threadbare

I feel compelled to ask


What are best friends really for

Answers on a first class post card please


Tho I do so hope not

should you eva catch a cold

I would surely lend my hand to hold


And should by chance you eva need to holla

I would be your cough sneeze

and your swalla……


‘A little bird told me to say that’

      I always like the Plath quote about friendship, you know the one about vomiting?

      I guess a best friend is a safe place to lie your head when you have a cold, or a wobble, or a catastrophe?

      It’s safe because they still see you and love you and they don’t just see the cold or the wobble or the catastrophe.

      I gave my protagonist a best friend because I so wanted one myself... and then...

      • Neville

        Is that a yes then..... cheers sylviasearcher, my friend.. N

                Best friends to the bitter end said the crows in Jungledbook and I took that as my mantra - so if you're ever in a jam - here I am........ ha - - - yet another ol' 'quote....... but I really believe in the message between your lines mi amigo.

                  I'm such a recluse these days i hardly know what friendship is any more. Oh yes i remember, they're the ones who showed their true colours. Not to be sneezed at when in need.
                  Bless your little bird.

                    A best friend is someone who is always there for you in both the goo and bad times, they are worth there weight in Saffron. (saffron is more valuable than gold).

                    • Neville

                      too true in every respect....... respect GF60..
