Can You Reach My Friend?

I am currently thinking of my friend who I did not see for years. She was my best friend and until now she still is. However, things were not the same as before, since we now live far from each other. We used to hang out a lot and were inseparable. But time came when I was too preoccupied with work that I didn’t get to spend time with her. When things went wrong with her, I was furious. But I also felt guilty about it, for not being there for her when she was lost. I thought that things would have been prevented had I been there to guide her. But since our friendship mattered the most, we tried our best to put the flaws aside and live life as it is. She returned to her hometown and I remained here. But I missed her. She’s a friend who was my exact opposite, yet we clicked. She always listened to me, even if I gave her some constructive criticism, she always took it positively. Even after I scolded her with what had happened to her, she still listened and held on to me, saying she'd try her best to make amends and make the wrong things right. Nowadays, even though we don’t get to see each other, we still communicate by phone, but not as often. Sometimes, she would tell me she’s OK and contented, however, at times I can feel that she’s lonely. I'm reminded of the song that we used to sing. I always dedicate this song to her whenever I play it on my guitar...

Can You Reach My Friend?

I got a call from an old friend
We laughed about how we had changed
But I could tell things weren’t going as well as she claimed
She tried to hide her feelings, but they only gave her away.
The longer I listened, the more I kept wishing
I knew the right words to say.

Can You reach my friend?
You’re the only One who can
Lord, I know that You love her
So make her understand
Can You reach my friend?
Bring her search into an end
And help her bring her heart to You.

We talked for more than an hour
And I smiled when she mentioned Your Name.
I said I knew You
and told her the difference You made
She never thought she needs You
But maybe she’s changing her mind.
As we said goodbye, Lord, she told me that
I have found something that she’d like to find.

Can You reach my friend?
You’re the only One who can
Lord, I know that You love her
So make her understand
Can You reach my friend
Bring her search into an end
And help her bring her heart to You.

Maybe she’s ready tonight
Lord, she said that she might
Make a call on You.

Lord, can You reach my friend?
You’re the only One who can
Lord, I know that You love her
So make her understand
Can You reach my friend
Bring her search into an end
And help her bring her heart to You.

Lord, help her bring her lonely heart to You.

Hey cooks! So sorry I haven't been around lately. Well, come to think of it, I have hardly been bloghopping at all. Trying to get back on track here.

Anyways, I believe that we'll always miss a best friend. No matter how near of far or whether we're still close or not. :)
