a true friend

By , baraboo, WI
You saw right through my pretenses

you looked right through my mask

you knew just when I needed a hug

I never needed to ask



You showed up when I was lonely

you stayed when I was depressed

all of my rude comments

you shruged away in jest



You saw all my dark

you saw all my light

you were always by my side

even when I wasnt right



You cheered up me when I was sad

you caught me when I fell

How did you come to earn my trust,

when I trusted no one else at all?



Now look what i have done,

ive told you that you are no longer in my life; when you would never turn me away

ive pushed you away knowing that you would be there for me everyday.

ive taken for granted that you would hold me when I was feeling sad.

or that you would rejoice when i was feeling glad.

ive ruined us, you would know the right thing to say, you would put it gentley,

to make the pain go away.

A friend like you i hoped would stay.



Now youve gone away,

and i know it was my fault,

i took you for granted,

so i think i should say,

you were a true friend,

always and forever,
