"Experience is a hard teacher. It gives the test before teaching the lesson."

Life can be harsh, like a slap to the face.
It’ll take what it gives, leaving chaos in place.
They say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade,
And don’t let anything rain on your parade.
I say when you get lemons it’s alright to pout,
It’s okay if your parade gets drowned out.
Just try harder next time.
Each moment is special, life is a gift,
It’s never okay to just let yourself drift.
When you don’t live to the fullest, you’re only cheating you,
Giving your best is all that you can do.
Whenever you get lost, you’ll always be found,
This is my promise that I’ll always be around.
I’ll try harder this time.
Every time it seems like everything’s going wrong,
I’ll be around to support you and keep you strong.
All that we can ask of life is to have one true friend,
One who doesn’t judge, and will be there to the end.
Life will get tough, but I will stay true,
Cause I’ve never had a better friend than you.
We’ll try harder every time.

I wrote this for my very best friend. Not my best, but it gets the point across.
