You look at me and pass me by
As if you don’t remember.
I guess “best friends” don’t last this long,
You’ve forgotten our years together.

You are not fazed as I approach,
To you I’m just another face.
I remember the times we were never apart;
Now I wonder who took my place.

All the time together in the past,
Seems distant and far away.
The love for each other has faded now,
And there is none left for today.

Sure it was tough to say goodbye,
And turn around to start brand new.
I’ve lost my friendships with everyone,
And now I’ve lost you too.

I suppose I’ll burn the memories,
Since we’ve got nothing left to say.
You’ll become just another stranger,
As I watch our past fade away.


The author's comments:
I ended up transferring schools this past year, and I had to say goodbye to all my friends I had gone to school with since Kindergaten! I wrote this to show how I felt when I began losing my friends and relationships, and how hard it was to understand I had lost my best friend.

Sad. really shows the emotions. I think this is a wonderful peice and i'm sorry about your friends :| sadly, the way i relate to this is i probably cause this feeling in other friends (Without meaning to)
