She’s there for a reason and her reason is money.
If you’re not doing well she won’t find your jokes funny!
She can’t understand why you treat her so well,
When here purse is empty and her budget’s shot to hell.
So she gets suspicious and stays away,
From friends with values that might teach her a different way.
She’s the one with values that are all about money,
And she burns up inside when she feels your days are sunny.
You are friends for all seasons, for worse and for better,
She’ll only learn the hard way, and you need to be patient enough to let her.
Sometimes when friendships fail, we have to remember that it’s not about us. It’s them.
Be patient and let time smooth out the rough edges. Or let go and move on knowing we did the best we could. And let that be enough.
