I only ask that you listen when I speak,
In return I will give you both ears kindly.
Be there when I am in pain and need a shoulder,
I’ll be there to catch you if in time you do fall.
Please do not stab me in the back, no talking about me,
For you I will speak directly to you, also if i’m angry.
Understand that there is in me no perfect piece you’ll see,
I know you are a person with human flaws, that’s quite okay,
Be a friend to me and a friendship we will share, I do care.
