You Taught Me - Poem by courtney helm

this is about my friend

You taught me who I can be,
You taught me who my true friends are,
You taught me how much a person can cry,
You taught me how much a person can take,
You taught me how it feels to lose someone,
You taught me how to be strong,
You taught me how to stand up.

Don't say I used you, when you did it all the time.
Don't say you want to be my friend, and then hang with only Lindsay and Abby,
Don't act like it's a joke, because really I slowly die inside,
Don't say 'sorry', and then take a re-run,
Don't pretend like you like me, than go behind my back and stab,
Don't say you love me, because that would be another lie,
Don't get mad, this is all true.
