Poet's Notes about The Poem

A true friend
I saw you walkin' down the street
And it seemed like you needed someone to talk to
We walked the road feet by feet..
Thinking of what can i do to help you.

The days passed by so quickly
And we became a life-time friends
I had trusted you completely
Never thinking how it ends.

Today you saw me walkin' down the street
And it seemed like i needed someone to talk to
You just walked away feet by feet
You left me behind, thinking who i can turn to.

I tried to understand what happened
But it was only just in vain..
That walking away caused me pain..
And it only took a second.

I guess people just change
They walk away with no letter..
In hope they'll find something better
And they don't even care in exchange.

Well guess what dear friend
You just lost a true one
You'll remember the time we spent
It can't replace me that someone.

I hope true friendship didn't dissappear
And someday i'll find it again..
I hope trust will slowly reappear
And all this faith will not be in vain.
