You used the eraser to erase my bad habits
And used the pencil to draw in new ones
You used the sharpener to shave my rough edges
And the scissors to cut me a new shape
You used the glue to stick a new face on me.
And the calculator to change my way of thinking
You used the ballpoint pen to make these changes permanent
And you gave me a ruler…
You told me to use the ruler to measure myself up to your standards
Do every thing you do, say every thing you say.
I walk next to you now
You have changed me
You have changed me so much I don’t even know who I am
All I know now is that you are my friend.
