“Best friends til the end”, we said it a lot.
But here we are, growing apart.
You had your groups, and I a new friend.
Now for the big question, “is this the end”?
You said “Of course not, we’ve been here before,
Its no different from last time, just a new door
The old ones still there, open and clear
Best friends till the end, of course my dear”
Just some months later, the question reappeared
Farther apart we had grown through that year
Now for new schedules, clothes, and friends
I with the “Emo, ” you with the trends
When I asked you, you said “It’s ok
We’ll still hang on weekends and talk on the phone just the same”
But then I saw how that was so untrue
oh how the lies had bleed from you
The attention you craved, I alone could not give
You turned to guys, and I, I just hid
I hid from life, I hid from you
Overall, I hid from the truth
Then I slowly recognized the truth that hid inside
How you had so often lied, and I, I turned toward suiside
Was it really too much to ask of you, to care and be there
I thought all I had left to say was “the end is here my dear”
But looking back this sophomore year
I see you were always here my dear
And now im proud to say
You’re the reason I’m here today
The lesson I so dutifully learned
Is proven by my goodbye letter I up and burned
And although many things have changed,
New clothes new friends, new schools, new names
I find that your still here my dear
And you watched, eyes filled with tears
As I made my oh so humble change
Stepped out of my cocoon and grew my wings
