it’s when you’re lying there alone
at 3 a.m. after dusk, before dawn
that it is the loneliest hour
 
it’s that time when parties are ending
bars are closing and shops are done
you wish you had someone
 
it’s not about lovers
it’s about friends and family
 
the most important people in your life
are the ones you can call up at 3 a.m.
and just cry your heart out to
 
maybe it’s not tears, maybe it’s thoughts
whatever, doesn’t matter at all
they’re there for you
 
He’s there for you to tell you guys suck
She’s rooting you on to be strong
Both know you’ll get through it
 
Both know the song in your heart
and can sing it back to you
when you’ve forgotten
 
Friends may not talk for days or years
But out of the woodworks, at rock bottom
Roses heave you off the ground, angels sing
 
Knees locked, feet flat and back straight
Chin up, eyes ahead and you’re good
To walk on your own and be who you are
 
It’s not about breaking
                                losing
                                        forgetting
 
It’s always been right there
waiting for you to return
Forever meant to be shared
 
Friendships, like life
do go on…
