Longing For A True Friend
My one and true friend died about 5 years ago, Donna was her name. That girl took some mighty fine secrets with her when she left but she also took a piece of my heart with her. I often heard that you only find that one true loyal friend in a lifetime and I am beginning to believe it. Today, there is so much pettiness, competition, whatever, in friendships. I have NEVER gone after a "friends" man or talked behind my friends back but it doesn't work that way for me at least - there seems to be NO trust - people have become so selfish these days - out for me, me, me - not once thinking about that other person. I am simply looking for someone, male or female, who will be a TRUE friend - someone who will be there in the good times and the bad, someone to laugh with, cry with, share life's ups and downs. Donna and I would hop in the car once the kids were on the bus and just hang out and shop, gamble a tad bit (sometimes a tad bit too much :) ) or just sit and drink coffee and talk for hours about anything, everything or nothing at all. To me, that is a TRUE friend - someone I can share my secrets, hopes, dreams with - and not have them broadcasted for the whole world to hear. It is rare if you can find that in this day and age.
