You may be friends for a long time
and not be together for a lifetime.
Some friends linger at lunchtime
just to make merry in the meantime.
Some stick closer in springtime
but grow wings in summertime.
Some choose to cheer at showtime
but drift away like dew in downtime.
Some will whirl away like wind in wartime
but will preen like a patch in peacetime.
Some will only spend their spare time
while some will willingly do overtime.
Some will show up just in time
while some will show up anytime.
Some will love dearly at daytime
Some will follow nearly at nighttime.
Some will be your favorite pastime
Some will be your favorite all the time.
