Friends: Are you really remembered or are you forgotten?

They always say, "When you make new friends, don't forget the old ones." But what happens when you are forgotten?

Can you rewind time to prevent it from happening?


Do you move forward and pretend it's OK?

Some say just let it be, but how can you?

How can you forget all the memories that were made?

All the promises that were said?

All the tears that were shed?

How can you move ahead when you know all is not dead?

Did you know that love begins with the truest of friends?

What happens when you fall in love?

Do you stay and share?



Ugh, it’s all so hard...

You fall in love and when you think that all is right,

you get ready to tell but then you realize all is not well..

Your friend that meant everything to you,

left you in the dust when they ran ahead..

So how can they say, "When you make new friends, don't forget the old ones?" It’s never true because no matter what,

you'll always be forgotten... </3
