TO A WAYWARD CHILD AND A WICKED FRIEND
When you grow up to be big and strong and face the truth of all you had to say today. And when you can do it all on your own and need nobody to show you the way
When you have a home and car of your own. And recall how you forced your way with rights not your own. Or when you finally stop to think of how freely you spent money that was really on loan
When you remember that, you had more time for foes and less for friends. And sense that, you may have caused just a little pain
Then, when you find out who funded your great escapades And even if I am dead and gone when it dawns on you that I am not the enemy, it will be good for you to know that I forgave you long, long, long ago.
