"Friends are like stained glass windows, they sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when darkness sets in, they shine only when there is a light from within"

Your pain is my pain,
won't you understand?
You can't pull the trigger,
I'm holding your hand.
Memories still linger,
deep in my mind
of all the things we've done,
leading to this demise.

Have I ever steered you wrong?
Till now, have I wasted my time?
Day after day, I prove you strong,
but against this you've drawn a fine line.

Moments pass,
but memories never fade.
You may ask
why I bother to save,
a life already lost.
But in my heart I am sure,
you have the strength to overcome.
Just trust me now.
Have I ever been wrong?

What have I done for you so far,
based on our past,
moving so fast
I'll never let you fall,
and even so,
if you logic you won't accept,
I won't let go
the progress I've set to last.

Even if you grow to hate me,
I will not let you go.
I've lost to two friends this way,
I will lose no more...

"God will not change the condition of people until they it change it themselves..."
[The Holy Quran, Chapter 13, Verse 11]

I believe, no matter what happens, our effort never goes to waste. Whatever changes we make, whatever effort we put in, whatever we get in return from God is best for us, even if we don't realize it.

I like it, makes sense but I get this feeling that your forcing someone into feeling something tehy dont want to. If a person doesnt have ur trust then gain it don't force it. Forcing it will only make it worse good luck with your friend.
