Will You? (FOWC)

Will you continue to be my friend…
When I forget to call
When I miss your birthday
When I can’t come to dinner
Will you continue to be my friend…
When I have a panic attack at your house
When I cry over the phone
When I reach out in desperation
Will you continue to be my friend…
When I can’t leave my house anymore
When I anxiety makes me physically ill
When I stay in bed for weeks from depression
Will you continue to be my friend?

Loss vs. Pain

I don’t want it to end

I want to hold on tight

I want it to continue

I want you in my life

But there is a pain there

And an ache I can’t control

Now the question arises

Should I let you go

It’s a matter of my peace of mind

And whether you’re there for me

The silence overwhelms me

And lack of concern eats at me

For now I just wonder

I keep it in the back of my mind

The loss is worse than the pain

So I still hold on for today…
