What a way to ditch someone…

You had no idea what our bond meant to me, it’s clear now. You left me meteora, frozen in midjump. Daring me to forget your name and face.

It’s hard to forget pain… But it’s harder still to forget a friend.

You didn’t get it, did you…? How much it meant, when you would turn the other cheek, when you would give me a smile for no reason at all, when you would show me that I was wrong, right to my face.

Every time we battled, we held back smiles,

Neither of us ready to go to war.

You shaped me, you know that? Every small action ordaining to match your precedent. It is said admiration poles understanding, but I was sure of the inverse. I mean, I’m more than a number you can throw into a formula like that one… I’m me… And nothing bad ever happens to me…

Heh, look at me now, though…

I’m by myself, sitting on a swing, hoping for a push.

But you know what? Death don’t square up all debts.

You left a job undone… So yeah, I’ll take up your yoke, I’ll carry your load, cause unlike you, I’m gonna finish what I started someday.

And unlike you I’ll tell my friend goodbye the day I depart this life.

I miss you, dude.
