Kelly Curiel (July 22,1993 / Thousand Oaks)
What happened to our friendship
how ever did it end?
Now I wish for you my dear,
and all your sweetness again.
When you moved away
strong emotions faded
could we have been in love?
I would not know for I am jaded
But it’s too late for these questions
for I have found my true love now
though I can’t help but wonder
if we could at least be friends, somehow.
I never did you wrong
though maybe through your eyes
I always told you what I felt
and never did I lie.
Whenever times were tough
was I not always there?
I think you know deep in your heart
I will always care.
All was fine between us
‘Til that painful night
you confronted me with such hurtful things
starting up a fight.
Words were a knife to my tender heart
which almost seemed filled with hate-
where did these cruel thoughts come from?
I guess you can’t battle with fate
All I wanted was the chance to love you
to be with you forevermore
though sorrowfully, it seems to me
God had other things in store
Oh the many times I’ve said sorry
but you’re too stubborn to forgive
It’s sad to see how hard-hearted you are
you act as if I’ve ceased to live!
What happened to our beloved bonds
the emotions that were there?
What happened to the thoughtfulness
you always used to share?
I look back on our sweet friendship
though it wasn’t very long
and think, since it ended so quickly
it never grew to be that strong.
