It all started with one small wave
That I have met you, my dear friend
Memories then started to engrave
When you came by; a real godsend.
I've never asked for someone better
My bland life you've put some color
Why would I even wish for a boyfriend,
When I've got you, my one true friend?
You’ve made me laugh, you’ve made me cry
Some nights we even got so high
I try my best, every free weekend I got
We would hang out anywhere and eat a lot.
Your surprises gave me much joy:
The little things I’m grateful for.
When I am down, you pick me up
Gave me the strength I need, my friend.
I may have wronged you in some way
The things I’ve done, the words I’ve said
Yet, you find ways for us to amend
I thank you, (and sorry for those!), my dear friend.
But then one day, something changed
You’ve stopped the laughter and the games
We weren’t the same as before,
Where is the “we” that we used to enjoy?
“Dear I’ve missed you, how are you now?”
Days have passed, waiting the reply
You’ve replied, alas! You said “ciao”,
I thought it’s “hello,” but it was “goodbye”.
No reasons, no closure, still you left
Mad as I am, I didn’t care
Bubbling up inside me, this bowl of hate
I didn’t want this, this bitter fate.
The flames died down, also did my fear
Of losing someone, who’s always been so dear
It took guts, but then I approached you
“I’m sorry”, I said, the tears weren’t few.
You said nothing, expression’s blank
Double-checked if this was a prank
Your lifeless face remained in sight
My dear friend had recently died.
I shouted your name, right out loud
Even said the things that we have vowed
It was too late, you’ve gone to rest
Myself I then began to detest.
I put all the blames on me
For being so weak and a crybaby
For not admitting my past mistakes;
To save our friendship, whatever it takes.
It was hard, but I accepted
A big part of me has already ended.
So, goodbye my dear, I’ll never forget
How I had someone like you, my one true friend.
