WE COULD HAVE LASTED

The day I met you, I found a friend 
And a friendship that I pray would never end.

you were by my side through it all,
you were there to catch me when i fall.
you told me the truth, even if it was not what i wanted to hear,
you were always there with a hug and a listening ear.

You were my best friend, you belong in my heart,
We went through ups and downs, but still nothing could tear us apart.
I knew you as a sister, and I will always care,
Love, respect, and trust are the things we shared.

You helped me learn to love myself
You made life seem so good.
You said I can do anything I put my mind to
And suddenly I knew I could.

You were always there for me,
I knew I could count on you.
You gave me advice and encouragement
Whenever I didn't know what to do.

but then i watch you walk away from me
And the tears start to fall,
I ask myself a billion times
How did we lose it all?

For the first time I had no words
that to you I could say,
clanged on to old memories
while I watched you walk away.

I remember the time not long ago
When we laughed and shared it all,
were we the very soul sisters?
Or at least that's what I thought.

now i glance back to take a last look
to see me as a part of your past,
forgotten friendships buried
never meant to last...

  9. Amazing poem! This is so heartfelt and beautiful. Made me think of all the fallen friendships in the past. I think the best line was the last one <3 Sad but beautifully put.

  10. A wonderfully written poem, with a sad theme :( . I can feel your emotions, I hope whatever the cause is can still be patched up.

  13. I'm never good at poems that's why I totally admire those who can make one. I like the way how you started with the good points and push through the other emotion on the last part. :)

  15. There`s always a purpose to anything that happens. If people stay or depart from my life, I trust that it`s for the very best.

  17. That's a really lovely poem. When I was younger, I used to write them all the time, but now I kind of lost all the motivation and the 'talent' if I even had one.
