I lost a friend today
I do not know why,
He didn’t explain it to me
When he said “Good Bye.”
I held my own until I was out the door,
And then I let go with a big cry.
I thought we were friends of the very best kind,
No strings attached,
Just a good time.
I loved his voice when he read out loud,
The things he said made me proud.
He got me “hooked” on “House of Cards”
From the President, the Speaker and even the guards.
Now it’s over – I feel so bad,
I’m so very tired of being so sad.
First it was my husband of 46 years,
And then it was Tim who brought me to tears.
Then I was scammed by a man named Tom,
And now it is this man who threw me a bomb.
I wasn’t in love with this male friend,
He warned me against it from beginning to end.
The void gets deeper with each passing day,
I am so depressed I don’t know what to say.
Life is not easy for this old gal,
It seems impossible to find a pal.
I hope this feeling will pass real soon,
I hate the feeling of darkness and gloom.
Tomorrow is new; the next day too,
Maybe I’ll find someone nice to woo.
Someone of interest with no strings attached,
Someone whose heart has been unlatched.
In the meantime I suffer the pain and the sorrow,
I’m not sure there is hope for tomorrow.
But I’ll keep plugging and hope for the best,
That I’ll meet a man that can pass the test.
And the loneliness and sorrow will quickly pass,
And once again I can be a “Smart Ass.”
