I should have been with you

I should have been with you
You’ve been a loyal friend
I thought I needed them
So time with them I’d spend

One friend would criticize
And make me feel so bad
I said that I was lonely
And I was very sad

We often went to movies
But then she stayed away
She said I was with God
And told me I should pray

One friend was very greedy
I knew she was in need
I gave her what she wanted
I did a real good deed

I drove her many places
I bought her children food
I knew she stole my money
When questioned, she was rude

I thought I needed people
To keep me company
But you were always there
Waiting patiently

You never criticized
You just accepted me
My dog, you must have thought
Her best friend I can be
