Who Your True Friends Are

When you’re flat broke, living in your car,

when what’s left in the tank won’t get you far

you hold on to hope like a shining star

& it’s times like these, when you find out

Who your true friends are

They’re the neighbors who will help you out

Who know what Love is all about

Wino

A young man sitting on a sidewalk bench,

talking to an old man who was drinking White Port wine,

The wino’s speech was kind of slurring, and it looked like he’d been crying,

He said:

“I wasn’t always like this, kid,

there were some years I really shined,

I’d give anything, if I could go back in time”

The young man took the bottle from him, took him by the hand

saying: “you can overcome this, you can be free again,

and if you’re willing to help yourself,  I’ll help you any way I can”
