FRIENDS
by FAY SHAW OWENS-KINSEY

THERE ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FRIENDS
SOME ARE GOOD AND SOME ARE BAD
SOME WILL LOVE YOU AS YOU ARE
SOME MAKE YOU FEEL YOU'VE BEEN HAD

THERE ARE THOSE WHO FREELY GIVE
THEY'RE THE ONES WHO REALLY CARE
THEN THERE ARE THE TAKERS
WHO WANT MORE THAN THEIR SHARE

APPEARANCES CAN BE DECEIVING
SO HOW DO YOU TELL THEM APART
THE PROCESS DOESN'T TAKE TOO LONG
PICK THE ONES WHO SHARE THEIR HEART

THERE ARE THOSE WHO REALLY RATE
THEY'RE THE ONES WHO SIMPLY DO
YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO ASK THEM
THEY NUMBER BUT A FEW

FRIENDS ARE SORT OF LIKE A FOREST
NOW AND THEN YOU WEED IT OUT
THERE ARE GIVERS AND THE TAKERS
AND SOME YOU'LL ALWAYS DOUBT

SOME WILL STAND BEHIND YOU
AND SOME WILL STAND AFAR
PICK THE ONE WHO STANDS BESIDE YOU
HE KNOWS WHAT A FRIEND IS FOR
