There’s no time like right now

To share your deepest heart

For it will have lost its value and beauty

Once its time for you to depart 


To have that remarkable precious moment

When you can look right into someone’s eyes

And confess everything that has been good

As well as those little ugly white lies 


To possibly have a few laughs

As well as some bittersweet tears

Breaking down old tired barriers

And admitting some of your useless fears  


Just thoroughly cleansing your soul

With no attachment to the end

Just clinging to the distinct belief

That you will be even better friends 


Are you brave enough to do it?

And push your ego out of the way

And just be ready to graciously accept

Whatever it is they have to say 


Many are the brave occasions 

When I’ve put my judgments and stories away

And more often than not

It was the beginning of a brand-new day 


It will not be easy for those that are non-receptive

However you’ve done what you needed to do

Just by being forthright and pure of heart

And giving up your old point of view 


Don’t decide to perhaps do it tomorrow

Don’t say you’ll do it another time

For being a procrastinator in this situation

Will one day feel like a regretful crime 


So many are the miraculous moments

When I just simply gave in

And more often than not

We became the best of lifetime friends
