164. It's Because I Am Your Friend - Poem by John Westlake

You don't to have be shy with me
don't need to be embarrassed at all
you can talk to me about anything
I want to pick you up when you fall

You don't need to hide anything away
don't have to be afraid
I'm not like any other you've met
where they have run I will stay

I will not judge you on what you tell me
as long as you only tell me the truth
honesty is always the best thing
and so long as you are with me
I'll always be true with you

You want to know why I'd do this
why I would stay until the end
well I guess the answer is simple
it's because I am your friend
