You splashed into my life
like a rock being thrown into
the river with the sound of plop.
I knew you were a keeper
nothing I seemed to do would make you leave
I threw you away so many times only for you to surface again.
I just wanted to be alone but you always felt your presence was needed
at least two to three times a week.
You didn’t believe in someone being alone with their thoughts for long, sometimes I felt you could read my mind or hear my thoughts.
For when I was down you always seem to come around and put a smile on my face and, even when I didn’t want to be bothered there you were smiling and offering up hugs.
Your my rock too worthy to throw away into the cold river on a nice day.
