Why can't you forgive me?
You forgive others happily.
But to me you give a cold shoulder.
But, really, how could my life be any colder?
I've said I'm sorry.
My apologies are not a fake story.
Please, just listen.
Okay, fine, don't. But you don't know what you're missin'

Is this a trust issue between us?
Just forgive me already! I'm starting to cuss.
I know that I seem angry and mean.
But you weren't there, you hadn't seen.
I told you my agonizing words of apology.
There's nothing left I can do except be friendly.

I've forgiven you before.
So why can't you show me that same open door?
A door to friendship, laughter, and smiles.
Because it seems there's been infinite dials.
Why won't you answer your phone?
I hate being all alone.

We've been friends since... forever.
Our friendship just couldn't get any better.
So, just listen, breathe in.
It's not like I committed the worst sin.
I didn't do anything.
But still you moan and cry and say I need to die.
But, all I have to say is, why?
So, what? It was just one tiny little white lie.
You'll live, you'll be fine.

Why would you want to be their friend? Come, and be mine.
If we don't make up now, we'll lose our time.
So, forgive and forget.
Don't keep on worrying. Just let the world go on, let it.

Remember that first day we met?
You, with your hair in dark black braids.
That memory just never fades...
Me, with my little pink dress.
And my hair a mess...
We were best friends instantly.
There were no delays, no time in between.

So lets not delay our friendship any longer.
Let's find when we were young.
The words you said to me really stung.
But I'll make you a promise, this one I'll keep.
If I forgive you, then you must forgive me.

The author's comments:
This is written in one of my best friend's point of view. She was having some trouble with another one of my and her best friends. She still is. It is a very petty reason to stop your amazing friendship over something as stupid as they are fighting over. Don't let it happen to you. Hold onto your friends and never let them go, you'll need them later on in life.
