Welcome to another moment for the Hive Open Mic. It's week 117 and the theme was chosen by @chosenfingers titled “True Friends”.


This theme made me remember my moment with my childhood friend and that made me choose this wonderful song by Dan Seals titled “One friend”. Sometimes, you should be grateful for the kind of friend you have in your life.

I said in one of my posts then that having just one friend is better than having multiple people as friends who aren't contributing to your life.

Here is my childhood friend that I can say believed in me, was there for me when I needed help and even when I was so down, especially losing someone so close to me to death, she stood by me.


I always thought you were the best
I guess I always will
I always felt that we were blessed
And I feel that way, still

This part of the song made me go back to memories. Yes, I would say she was and will always be the best. Our friendship is more than 15 years now and still counting. She is indeed God sent.

She knows how to calm me down. There was a time I had an issue with my Dad, he knows she is the only friend I have and went to meet her to talk to me. She came around and spoke to me truthfully and that was all. I never had such a good and true friend as her because she was always ready to believe in me and give me her counsel.

With this week's theme, I am so excited I can sing this song to appreciate those times we have been together. She is married with a cute son, Nathan (My godson).

I hope my entry would be counted in due to some circumstances surrounding it. It was raining when I was recording and my room was dark, plus no electricity. I had to do something irrespective of what was happening because if I didn't record then, I wouldn't be able to especially when it's getting towards the afternoon where noise would surely disrupt me. I did recorded this very early in the morning while others were still sleeping.


I always thought you were the best
I guess I always will
I always thought that we were blessed
And I feel that way still

Sometimes we took the hard road
But we always saw it through
If I had only one friend left
I'd want it to be you

Sometimes the world was on our side
Sometimes it wasn't fair
Sometimes it gave a helping hand
Sometimes we didn't care
