Sometimes your best friend is just a figment
A piecing together of memories, things forgotten
And what you always wished.
It’s just someone frozen in your mind
When you hang onto that, everything real loses value
And you miss the good of here and now.
What I want is only love, everyone says
Then take it when you’ve got it
And see it when it’s there before it’s gone.
The best friends of the past were great
But the friends of today are real and
We get angry sometimes.
But the best part of that is it’s easy
To forgive people you really love
And who really love you.
Unconditional best friends
It’s the best thing and it’s another one of those lessons
That you can learn from one silly little puppy.
