one I had to take
time to write no matter how
it is for me
see he had a friend even
than me- That brown bottle
friend always held him tight.
him feel no pain and did not
and argue just let him slip away into the day or night.
would get so jealous
much it had a grip of fear on me
friend brought many fears and insecurities
knew he truly loved me but what if the friend led him astray?
friend of his loved to have fun
if it was just an afternoon in the sun.
friend was always there
no one else might have been
friend has slowly taken over-
ask will he see that the friend
will take it all
love him so much whether it is me or
special member of his family.
look to the little one as he
takes a drink.
have a life I want to share.
you say I’ve only had a few
that few can bring you so much
life of ill health
life of a disastrous accident
your own life or yet worse someone else’s.
has already started to steal the
what they call life
will say yes I do abuse at times
they are far and few between.
me be me and enjoy my LBL
too would drink along with him
alcohol, loosened the lips, inhibitions were
many things flowed
the morning after our heads aching with pain
do we do it again and again?
are times I fear of speaking of
fear he will keep the Best Friend not I
must only hope and pray
have so much to live for
friend is taking you away
I fear if it continues
words one day will have to be said
sorry dear loved ones
would not let go of the grip
the true life to be found
hard as it is, let go of that friend.
friend has caused many demons to run loose
are here dear Alcoholic
a hold of us.
