Goodbye To A Friend - Poem by Josh Burnett
Dear friend we had our ups and downs in this short time,
And I’m truly glad that we had enough strength to work it out.
Our friendship grew so close and it burned for me to say what I had to say.
In times though sometimes it seems like it’s the right thing to do.
Always know that I will always miss you.
Deep inside you left a mark on an unloved heart,
And I hoped that our love would never be torn apart,
By the sadness in our voice and the tears that hit the floor.
In times I felt alone and surround by a hating world,
But you showed me that it could be so much more,
And I finally found the happiness inside of me.
I guess maybe that is why we had to go our separate ways.
I found what I truly desired, but you always stayed down in the dumps.
Actions sometimes can be better than what could be said.
I know that it breaks my heart to think that I had to walk away,
But it was for the better of me, I’m sure it worked out on your end.
I never wanted to say goodbye to you friend,
We shared so many laughs that nobody could ever replace.
So many memories were shared in the silence of the night.
There is one thing that I can say and that is that I am truly sorry,
That we didn’t have a lot more time to hang around.
I started to slip away from my old ways of life,
And I started to live in the life that was new.
Maybe that’s where I went wrong, but it felt so right.
I hope that one day you will find your back to me,
And when you do I hope that you can forgive me for the mistake.
I can’t believe that I couldn’t see what I had right in front of me.
You meant so much to me and I just walked out without a single goodbye.
I hope that one day I can find you and the way you lived your life,
But I just have to let you know is that I can never go back,
To the way it use to be when I was so lonely.
I hope that one day you can once again be a part of my life.
I think that I would like that a lot,
And I hope maybe that when you do you will find the same happy as I did.
Then we both could truly live in the peace of harmony.
You don’t know how good my life has felt since I left you.
I walked away from you and convinced myself that I didn’t need you.
But when you come back home I hope that we can have the time of our life.
