New friendships blossom from the pain I have suffered
Growing strong whilst my child cannot
Invaluable companions, saving my life
I almost wish you’d go.
Friendships developed through a lack of something
Are they substitutions for love,
Or a healing factor necessary to
Reacquaint with my true self?
Extraordinary love of a friend still new
Reliant on our relationship I’ve become
The balance of someone new in my life
Replacing what has gone.
