"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed"

You thought no one would listen
That your words were meaningless
But I listened

Though it did not seem so
I knew the pain you went through
The right in your heart

The denial flashed though your eyes
I saw the hurt floating around you
But I just kept walking

While you drifted closer to the truth
The right thing to do
I drifted away

I didn’t stand behind you
Though I knew you were right
I didn’t realize it but I was pushing you away

Everything that mattered to you
I didn’t listen to
I just pushed it away

It seemed as though I didn’t listen
It seemed like you didn’t know
It seemed like I pushed you away because you didn’t matter

I never realized how important you were
But it seemed like you didn’t know
But I was wrong you were right

It is amazing how in one day
You can lose all your friends
But today you didn’t lose us
We lost you

You have been my friend
For so long
I am stupid for losing you
Be lucky that you were put here
So that no matter how bad things got
You were happy
So that mo matter how wrong we were
You were there telling us not to

I didn’t realize how lucky I was
Until you left
I didn’t know how bad I would hurt
Until you left

Friendship is a single thread
But while you hang in the balance
Something small can snap the thread
And it let me fall

It’s not that I didn’t listen
I just didn’t follow what you said
You were right
I was wrong

I didn’t know how
Something so small to me
Could be so huge to you
How one thing I said
One thing I did
Could break the breakable string

How could one small line of thread
Hold us both up
Together we were
Until I let the thread break
And I lost you

my friend leah has recently stopped hanging out with me and our friends because when we were all doing something, she didn't have anyone of us behind her telling everyone else not to do it. she yelled at all of us and i think that she will never forgive us again but i hope that she will when she reads this
