No matter how busy life gets
Or how Topsy turvy it feels,
We all need old faithful
You can get anywhere in jets
And millions out of your pocket spills,
No matter how many people surround you
Those who love or pretend to,
You’d still need old faithful.
Old faithful could be a person
Or it could be a thing,
It could be a place
Somewhere you can think
Exhale, relax and breathe.
Its who loyal enough to tell you the truth,
Its what brings you comfort no matter how used.
Old Faithful could be an old friend or old sweater,
An old trend that makes you feel better
After a bad day or friendship gone sour.
An old book you can’t get rid of
Or a listening ear that never puts you off.
Its your good old dog
Ecstatic every time you come through the front door,
Or a warm hug
In the arms of someone you love.
Old Faithful is loyalty,
It is truth and honesty,
It is where you feel safe and comfort
Where you are accepted with little or no effort.
