They hear it…

They hear the words.
They understand that you know what to do.
They know you may not know how to do it.
But while you figure that out…

Don’t forget.

Don’t forget those who do so much for you and expect nothing in return but friendship…

That’s exactly what they get, though…

…Nothing…

While you are figuring out how to show that you care…
The rest of them wonder if it is worth the effort anymore.
You might figure it out when it’s too late.
And they have already given up on trying so hard.
And they have left you there to figure it out.

By the time you figure it out,
They will have been hurt enough by you
To not want to care anymore.
They will walk away…
And when you finally wake up…
You will have missed the many chances they gave you.
The many times they were hurt and forgave you anyway.

What will you do then?

Who will you know?

Perhaps more importantly…

Who will know you?

Don’t cheat yourself of the chance of having them in your life.
