Ranting and raving
Alcohol and laughs
Shopping and coffee
Hiccups and gaffes

Chats with one
And drinks with two
All at the bar
To have a few

Friends from school
Friends down the road
All of them there
To lighten the load

A giggle or two
Venting a must
Friends together
Sweep away the dust

My friends are mums
Just like me
They need to sit
Have a cup of tea

Our lives are hectic
Hard to find time
But we do and together
We all drink wine

Friends are important
Always there for you
And you made a promise
To be there too

No matter what grief
Or troubled times
You're there for each other
And you'll all be fine.
