The Middle Friend Melody
We have just enough in common to have some common ground.
But I can never be your best of friends, because I'm not the best around.
I have flaws, and in my flaws I find I'm marked by doubt,
in my ability to provide for you what you're most without.
The things that you find in me you can find in other places,
but I'll gladly walk the road with you and help you dust for traces,
of a companion more suitable, with who you really click.
You see, I'm just a pitstop, I was never meant to stick.
My gifts for you are not as precious as those you'll get from them.
What I have to offer is not as priceless as they, or she, or him.
My role for you is not to be your most compatible companion,
but in other ways I am for you a much smaller champion.
If you accept me for my flaws, I'll accept you for yours.
I'll smile with you, and laugh with you, and we'll unlock many doors.
I'll provide for you somes notes for your basic life song.
a friend of average pitch and tune, to make your days less long.
