Did I Ever Tell You

                              By Chuck McGlawn Chuckest@aol.com

           

                    Did I ever tell you,

                 Just how nice you are?

                 Let me say it here today

                 You are my shinning star.

 

                 Did I ever tell you

                 How each and every day

                 You fill my life with happiness

                 And turn drudge into play

 

                 Did I ever tell you

                 How times when I am down

                 Your e-mail seems to pop up

                 And turns things all around

 

                 Did I ever tell you

                 Thanks for all you share

                 How when I need a friend most

                 You’re always just right there

 

                 Did I ever tell you

                 Though mere words can’t convey

                 Just how much you mean to me.

                 Well, I’m telling you today.

Metamorphosis

Companions and acquaintances

Slowly become friends and lovers

Through shared time and experience.

Ever so steadily, a person’s true face

Shines through whatever façade

They’ve donned to cloak insecurities.

Some at first, are beautiful and glowing,

While some, are unfortunately unattractive.

But as time drawls on the pretty turn ugly,

And the uncomely become butterflies,

Unveiling a stunning pair of wings.

Good Times

 A D 

It started out in the sixth grade 

we met and we became friends 

Always been real with each other

E Never felt the need to pretend 

 

I became a part of you 

And you became a part of me too

I hope we still remember each other

No matter what we E do 

 

Cause we always had...

 

We always had good times good times 

Always had good times good times 

We always had good times good times together 

We always had good times good times

Always had good times good times

I hope you had a good time good time with me 

 

 

Your hair is curly  

Mine is straight

You wake up bright and early 

while I get up late

 

We're totally opposite 

but in some ways alike 

Doesn't matter 

Who's wrong or right

 

We always had good times good times 

Always had good times good times 

We always had good times good times together 

We always had good times good times

Always had good times good times

I hope you had a good time good time with me

 

 

without you 

Wonder what I'd do 

You would have a hunch

But I would have no clue

So we're better together baby that's no lie

We could never hate each other no matter how hard we try 

Like Robin Thicke girl I'm lost without you

If you do your math right one and one make two 

You know what they say two heads are better than one 

Switch it up everyday never see a rerun 

You're into superheroes 

ironman and batman

Don't know what to do 

But you always have a game plan

Unlike a cellphone 

Never trade you in for an upgrade

Never shy away never be afraid 

The kind of friend that always stays true

Never let you go cause I met someone new 

No matter where I go your always in my heart 

Nothing in the world can ever tear us apart

 

Cause we always had...

 

We always had good times good times 

Always had good times good times 

We always had good times good times together 

We always had good times good times

Always had good times good times

I hope you had a good time good time with me

Cause I really had a good time good time with you

These Walls

 

These walls were all around me,
stretching far and wide.
These walls were up inside me,
spreading like a blight.
These walls, they kept me away
then there was a light.
I had a friend that would stay
and to this friend I say,
no longer sheltered and afraid,
that I will be there for you
If ever a wall you made.

By Your Side

the pain will subside

it will go away soon

I will be by your side

as we watch the new moon

there will no longer be a struggle

and we can sit by a fire

while we relax and snuggle

and when we retire

I will still be your friend

we can watch the old moon

as our lives come to an end

Thought We Were Friends

I thought we were friends,

you acted like

we were friends,

but now I just don't know!

 

 

Someone we both know,

someone who was first your friend,

told me about you.

 

She told me how you've

been talking about me.

 

You've been saying how

you're not fond of me.

 

 

Then you smile around me,

act like we're friends,

sending my head into

a tornado spin!

 

 

I get so confused,

don't know what to think,

don't know what to do.

 

 

I thought we were friends,

but maybe we're not,

maybe I'm just a friend of the moment...

 

 

But,

I've been here

each time you need me,

needed me to be there for you.

 

And once in a while,

you're there for me

when I need you...

 

 

So,

I don't know what

I'm supposed to do...

 

I don't know what

I'm supposed to think...

 

 

I don't know what

I'm supposed to feel...

 

 

I thought we were friends...

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Let Me know what you think!

 

I wrote this because I found out through a mutual friend, that the girl I thought was my best friend has been talking about not being fond of me behing my back...

This is the 3rd friend I've had who's like dropped me..

People Walk Over Me

What is it,

what is it,

that makes me be seen

as someone that

people can walk over?

 

I'm not quite sure

what it is about me,

but I'm really not good

at making good friends...

 

Now,

I can make new friends

pretty easily,

if I want to...

 

But most of the time,

I get friends who just

walk all over me,

who use me,

who keep me around

just for when they need me.

 

What is it,

what is it,

that makes me be seen

as someone that

people can walk over?

 

 

I want to have friends

who treat me

as well as I treat them!

 

Who want to hang out

with me.

 

Who text me back,

or even text me first!

 

What do I have to do

to have good friends?!

 

What is it,

what is it,

that makes me be seen

as someone that

people can walk over?

 

 

This doesn't seem

like I'm asking for much,

I just want a few good friends,

who will treat me right!

 

When, oh when,

will I get

some friends like this?

 

What is it,

what is it,

that makes me be seen

as someone that

people can walk over?

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Now, I'm not talking about any of you all of course, but I'm really not able to make good friends offline! Please let me know what you think, or give any advice!

Best Friends Are Like Stars

Best friends are like stars on a cloudy night
you may not see them but you know they are always there
through thick or thin their  friendship will always shine bright

You both can share the times of laughter and the times of sorrow
and those little secrets shared are safe and kept forever
there’s never a doubt each of you will be there come tomorrow

Even if life’s path changes along the way and one  moves away
distance and time can  never change the bond between best friends
that truly special friendship in each others heart is there to stay

Regrets

My only regret is not hugging you that night, 

not attempting to beat you at beer pong, 

not moving a little closer when we were both freezing,

not letting you know how adorable you looked,

not telling you how ecstatic I was that you showed up...
 

I just hope that through that simple goodbye

you knew what I was thinking, 

and maybe you, too,

had the same regrets.
