Though the sun shone brightly, the summer was dark,
the world seemed as though it would end.
Although that day wasn’t any battle,
it was the day that I lost a friend.
One fateful day, on the bus like always,
I sensed no change in the wind.
She told me through music, my heart then shattered,
for I knew I would lose my friend.
The house would sell, we both knew that,
but I hoped that time would suspend,
I know now that time bends for no one,
Not even when I lost a friend.
A humid spring day, I received a phone call,
from none other than my best friend,
“The house is sold,” she whispered to me,
and I knew I would soon lose my friend.
We threw her a party, to send her off,
I hoped that my heart would mend.
My friends and I, we waved our goodbyes,
But we had to let go of our friend.
There is a solution to every problem,
I found that out in the end.
For when friends move away, their memories stay,
I didn’t really lose my friend.
