Once I had some friendships
that went like sour grapes
They used to be so sweet they really were a treat.
Take care with whom you share your secrets
and aspirations in life
Make sure it is a proven friend who will not give you strife.
If life becomes too much for them
do not your confidence lend
for their moods can be unstable
even at your table.
Make them a casual acquaintance
and do not give them entrance
to the inner circle of your heart
be careful from the start
to see their true nature not just at their best
Make sure they are consistent so you have rest.
And if you can trust them you're truly blessed
you've found a friend indeed.
