Goodbye, old friend.
It was great while you were here,
So many memories,
All the old photos we share.
This run was long, a lifetime together,
Loved you so much, thought we’d be forever.
But these days I’m starting to wonder
If you ever needed me, as much as I needed you.
I guess you didn’t bother.
Never even noticed me, did you?
You were there when I was born,
But I fear that “you” is long gone.
I know life gets to us, things change,
But you could’ve chosen me,
Yet you thought better to estrange.
You’re not “you” anymore
I can see it in your stare.
Every friendly gesture I show
You counter with a glare.
A stranger now, a foreign being,
That is what you are now,
A caged soul that needs freeing.
So perhaps it’s time I let you go.
But if we were to meet again,
All I want is for you to know
That we will always be the same as we were before.
You will be welcomed if you’re at my door.
Till then, my friend, its best we bid farewell
Just know that I always have and always will
Wish you well.
