Did I ever stop…

I read a lovely poem today. Don’t know who is the poet.

Did I ever stop to make you smile
When your day was hard or your road was long?
When your light stopped shining for a while,
Did I sing for you a happy song?

Did I ever try to make you laugh
When your eyes held tears and you couldn’t speak?
When your world seemed almost torn in half,
Did I hold your hand or kiss your cheek?

Did I ever pause to hear your voice
When you needed just a moment’s ear?
When you’d lost your way or missed a choice,
Did I let you know that I was near?

Did I ever stop to say I care
When I didn’t seek to hear it too?
When you weren’t so sure that I’d be there,
Did I ever show my love for you?

If you have been a friend of mine, and you can say “yes” to the questions raised in the poem, I have been a true friend for you. Have you been a true friend to me? Read my parody to this poem:

Did you ever stop to make me smile
When my day was hard or my road was long?
When my light stopped shining for a while,
Did you sing for me a happy song?

Did you ever try to make me laugh
When my eyes held tears and I couldn’t speak?
When my world seemed almost torn in half,
Did you hold my hand or kiss my cheek?

Did you ever pause to hear my voice
When I needed just a moment’s ear?
When I’d lost my way or missed a choice,
Did you let me know that you were near?

Did you ever stop to say you care
When you didn’t seek to hear it too?
When I wasn’t so sure that you’d be there,
Did you ever show your love for me?
