Some take the term friends so easily
Or maybe I'm the only one who holds that term precious?
I sat with you at lunch a few times
Didn't talk much
That's my fault really
Only sat there because someone I considered a
Sat there too
Now her, I talked with much
I wanted to befriend you
You seemed like an interesting person
Did you even notice me sitting there?
I didn't know to find the words
To speak to you
I formed words in my mind
But never had the time to tell them to you
And I followed you around
As I thought friends did
Was I an annoyance to you?
We talked more and more
But I didn't consider us as friends yet
Where did I stand in your mind?
Were the things that I did
Then you told me that you
Didn't mind having no friends
You were used to it
I smiled and said that
We should be friends
I thought we already were friends
But you were just complaining of having none
I barely know you
Are we really?
What, in your mind, do you consider a friend?
Just someone you've talked to more than once?
Someone you eat lunch with?
How can we be friends if
You don't know a thing about me?
You don't know how many siblings I have
What I do in my free time
What my favorite color is
What things I hate
What things I love
I bet you didn't know my last name, either
Maybe my idea of a friend
Isn't the same as your idea of a friend
As anybody else's idea of a friend
A friend is someone you tease
You tell the outright truth to
Point out that something's stuck in their teeth
Hug them when you haven't seen them for a while
Talk with whenever possible
Go to with your problems
Choose to sit by them instead of any other
Tell jokes to
Give advice to
This is what a friend is to me
Is this why I don't have many friends?
