Charades

It’s funny how when you’re a child you wish your life away,
Blubbering a bunch of things that you would never say
If you knew how everything would change in the end
The person that you hate today might end up your best friend
The one you call your long-lost sister may one day seem a stranger
And you’ll keep on thinking what it could have been that changed her
Sometimes you get so close to someone, and you give them all your heart
But then they throw it on the floor and stomp out all the parts
They’ll make you think they cared about you, that you were always on their mind
But when you leave only God knows what they say behind your back,
And you’ll wonder what you did wrong and what you could’ve done
Why did they start being your friend and what had you begun
Way back when you thought you could rely on each other for all your life
She’d be the one who’d help you through your trouble and your strife
But something just went wrong, and you drifted far apart
And though you may not speak, the imprints she left will stay on your heart
Like a piece of sheet music with notes written in ink that never fades
Her mark will always be there, hidden behind your charades
She may think that you forgot her but the truth is she’s always there
And every time that she walks by, all you can do is stop and stare
And remember all your memories, and lessons that you learned
And no matter how much she hurt you, no matter how much it burned
She changed your life; she shaped you into who you are today
And though the change gives you great pain, you wouldn’t have it any other way
