It's a funny old thing life and friendship
|Life and friendship: Quality over quantity|
Unexpected news that shocks you to your core
Your world is over
Time is frozen
Or is it?
People are afraid. To approach. To speak. To congratulate
But here is the beauty of this beast
The wheat has sorted itself from the chaff
The true friends have stayed, shone forth
Those who don't, can't, ever get it
Will be blown on the wind
Focussed on superficialities that you now see through a crystal clear lens
Your heart will bleed
Anger and hurt will fill your mind
But the fog will clear
And you will know the freedom
You are the lucky one
No niceties to endure no small talk,
For there is no time
And you are better off
Your child is the looking glass,
You are distant sometimes, private, hidden
To all but a core of the most precious friends
Soulmates and aides of quality over quantity
What more could anyone ask?

Thank you to those that have stuck with our family through thick and thin, to those who have supported, bolstered, understood, held us afloat and sometimes glued us back together.
