Don'T Make Promises You Can'T Keep - Poem by Nick Jankowski

Do you remember what you said?
I never forgot...
'I'll be there for you always
Best friends until the end'
Oh, how many times you uttered
statements such as these
You threw them around
so nonchalantly,
those empty words
taken to heart
I confided in you
But following through
would've been too much to ask
When the time came,
you where nowhere to be found
I would like to take this time
to thank you- thank you so much
for absolutely nothing
