How Did We Grow Apart?

When we were young

We were best friends

Slip-n-slides in your backyard

“Spa Days” in mine

But then the time passed

I don’t know where it went

You didn’t tell me your struggles

I couldn’t help you

I was surprised when you went away

But I could still hear your voice

As I clutched the phone hard

Like a lifeline

Tears ran down my face

I missed you

And I couldn’t help you

And I couldn’t visit you

Even though you had helped me
