Years ago I found a friend
funny, caring, faithful and true.
I love her a lot and still she’s gone.
I wish I knew where I have failed you.
Doesn’t friendship mean ‘together’,
no matter how hard the times may come?
Friends may laugh and they may cry,
they even argue, when it’s troublesome.
But the love should carry them together
through friendship, life; through thick and thin.
Your friendship means the world to me
no matter where I was, I will be, or I’ve ever been.
Should I have hurt you, then I’m sorry.
You know me well, this I would never do!
As my friend, can you forgive me
and let me get it right for you?
One of the bases in the past years
was our friendship in my heart.
You have just left and yet I miss you.
My safe haven broke apart.
Your wisdom and your humor,
the way you laugh and talk with me
this is what I miss so much now
I’d hug you, on the count of three!
In case what I have done now
cannot be fixed, it is too bad…
I’ll still remember you with my love
helpless, clueless, and unbelievably sad.
