“We’ve been through some things together

With trunks of memories still to come

We found things to do in stormy weather

Long may you run”

I have a buddy, his name is Neil – he’s stuck by my side (though he may not know it) for over forty years now, through thick and thin, good times and bad – metaphorically holding my hand and sharing my joys and sorrows, without judgement. He’s changed over time, just as I have, and sometimes I feel a bit niggly towards him as I don’t always like everything he does. But I keep coming back to him, because all those songs, the music he makes, buoy me up, and each time I listen, I learn something new.

I have buddies through Moodscope too, and in turn am also a buddy – it’s taught me a lot, both about myself and the value of friendship. I’m writing this, my first blog today to try and help my buddy put herself first, something I know that she finds very hard to do.

So keep singing your songs, as you change through life, and remember that your buddies will be listening. Though you fear they might not always seem appreciative, your true voice will be heard, and, with others, may be just enough of a web to catch your buddy when they feel they’re falling… and they’ll be singing along to you too.

“…Long may you run.

Long may you run.

Although these changes have come

With your chrome heart shining in the sun

Long may you run”
