Change is not a stranger

though neither, is he a friend

I know his visits are inevitable

but lately, he shows up fairly often

largely obtrusive and very disruptive

It takes such a long time

to warm up to him

I search for the good in him

but acceptance is a difficult process

Eventually he does go his way, but usually

he takes someone dear to me

along with him, so, no

I wouldn’t call him my friend
