Brie Carter (March 12,1994 / Dalton)
'Friends Forever' you promised.
'Together 'till the end'
We did everything with each other.
You were my best friend.
When I was sad, you were by my side,
When I was scared, you felt my fear.
You were my best support-
If I needed you, you were there.
You were the greatest friend,
You always knew what to say:
You made everything seem better.
As long as we had each other,
Everything would be okay.
But somewhere along the line,
We slowly came apart.
I was here, you were there
It tore a hole in my heart.
Things were changing,
Our cheerful music reversed it's tune.
It was like having salt without pepper,
A sun without it's moon.
Suddenly we were miles apart,
Two different people, with nothing the same.
It was as if we hadn't been friends;
Although we knew deep in our hearts
Neither one of us was to blame.
You had made many new friends
And luckily, so had I.
But that didn't change the hurt-
The loss of our friendship made me cry.
As we grow older, things must change
But they don't always have to end.
Even though it is different now,
You will always be my friend.
