Remember me when the chips are down.
When it’s hard to see how much you’ve lost
gambling your trust on others.
No one bothers to check the score when
they’ve already lost,
but I promise it was closer than you thought.
I swear I can’t be bought.
Excessive kindness means nought
or nothing if you prefer a lack of linguistics
and a listening ear.
There is nothing to fear,
I’m always here.
I’m happy to wait for you,
forever if need be.
