These so called friends have let me down
And made me feel as though I would drown
My heart was broken, like a death to grieve,
These friends of mine set out to deceive.
We had been friends for many years,
With much laughter, fun and tears,
We'd had good times, but that was the past,
Like many things, they did not last.
They did not ring or call,
I think that just about says it all.
In my awful dark despair,
I really thought they would care,
They left me crying and so upset,
How could they, and yet,
"I'm alright" they said,
We don't care, we'll go ahead,
No doubt to complain, stir and moan,
But they had left me all alone.
The pain they caused will not go away,
It cuts deep and strong to this day.
How can people be so mean?
When I was always there so keen,
They did not deserve me as a friend,
I finally realized this in the end.
I am better, kinder, than they will ever be,
Love, respect they no longer have for me,
To me they are forever gone,
And in my life they no longer belong.
I realize now they were not real friends,
But used me for their own selfish ends.
I really don't think they will miss me,
But I've left them alone, and let it be
