oldest friend

this is this week's sunday scribblings.

when first I read this prompt, I was wondering. is it about an old friend, I mean really old. some one with my dad's age or something?
or is it a friend that you already have since long time ago?
to be honest, I'm not some one who is easy to get close to other. and when I do, no guarantee I'll stay close to them forever. I mean, when a friend is away from me, and I meet new people, it is to the new ones I will get close, although still never be too close.

first I want to take 'old' as age. so my oldest friend would be my friend at office. he's old enough to be my father. he's nice and warm, first thing he does when he meets me in the morning, is greet me and shake my hand. he tell jokes, and give me prompts to sing. yeah, I do sing all the time, even some time just humbling. everytime I stop singing, just because I feel bad, or I was thinking hard of something I was working on, he would sing a line or two. and I will sing to the rest. and then he'll say: yes! I made you sing again.

and taking the word 'old' as long time ago, music would be the one. I sing since I can remember things, say it I was 3 or a little bit more or less. this is the only friend I never let go. I don't even think I could live without it.

Music is almost life itself. It can bring happiness or tears....
Lets hope for the future our old friend helps us wipe away those tears..........

That's the thing about Sunday Scribblings topics. They can be taken either way...I used the Friend that is the oldest(in years), but usually when we say "oldest friend" we mean the person who has been our friend the longest amount of time--childhood friend or parents or siblings. Many chose that. Others did as you did and chose Music, instinct etc. What matters is the writing.

How wonderful that you have singing.
How honest of you to share that you do not get too close.
So present of you to be close to those around you, more than those that have moved on.

♡ Friends are a great thing. I have a hard time keeping up with those that live far away or don't have email. :)

music has a charm and a personality all its own - it can sit with you in quiet times, comfort you in grief, and lift your feet to dance - what a great friend to have!!!

Interesting takes on the word "old". It is nice to have those types of people who can cheer you up. Music is a great blessing, friend.
