Open Arms

A Friend was standing behind Someone,
Waiting, with their arms open.
They’d once been very close,
But that Someone turned their attention elsewhere.
That Someone had turned their back to this loyal Friend.
And seemed to no longer care.
Another approached this Friend and asked,
“Why are you standing here?
They have turned their back to you.
Why are your arms still open? 
Are you a Fool?"
The Friend smiled a gentle smile and said,
“I’m not a fool, I'm a Friend, here to catch them just in case They fall.”
