Thank You For Being A Friend

Thank you for being a friend, traveled down the road and back again
Your heart is true, you’re a pal and a confidant
I’m not ashamed to say, I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off won’t you stand up and take a bow

And if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew
Well you would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say

Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

If it’s a car you lack, I’d surely buy you a Cadillac
Whatever you need any time of the day and night
I’m not ashamed to say, I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won’t you stand up and take a bow

And when we both get older
With walking canes and hair of gray
Have no fear even though it’s hard to hear
I will stand real close and say

Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

Let me tell about a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

And when we die and float away
Into the night, the Milky Way
You’ll hear me call as we ascend
I’ll say your name, then once again
Thank you for being a

Thank you for being a
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

People let me tell about a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

Tell about a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

Pagi ini tepat setelah bangun tidur saya berpikir tentang persahabatan. Saya pikir, persahabatan sejati, persahabatan hingga akhir hayat itu mungkin memang benar-benar ada. Namun gairah persahabatan itu cenderung memudar seiring perubahan-perubahan yang terjadi dalam kehidupan.

Suatu waktu kita bertemu, lalu karena berbagai kecocokan, kita berteman. Lalu kita mulai membagi rahasia-rahasia terdalam dan kita menyebut hubungan ini persahabatan. Kita melewati saat-saat senang bersama, menangis bersama, melakukan berbagai hal gila bersama. Seakan-akan kita akan selamanya bersama.

Namun realita punya takdirnya sendiri. Tugas perkembangan menuntut kita untuk menjalani jalan hidup masing-masing. Kita ingin membagi afeksi dengan seseorang namun bukan sahabat, maka kita menemukan seseorang bernama kekasih. Dan kita mencurahkan perhatian lebih pada mereka. Di lain waktu kita butuh mengaktualisasikan diri, lalu kita mulai bekerja. Hingga akhirnya kita menikah dan hidup di dalam gelembung udara yang disebut keluarga.

Lalu segalanya tidak akan sama lagi.

Maka, nikmatilah romantisme persahabatan selagi masih bersama.

PS: Thank You For Being A Friend adalah lagu milik Andrew Gold yang terdapat dalam album ketiganya, All This And Heaven pada tahun 1978.
