Losing a friend

we laughed, we fought, we made up
that's what we did and more
we learned many a things, did we not?
we discovered so much about this world

we drank our tears, we swallowed our pride
oh what a journey, we dug into the past
one glitz and it vanished, our focus got distracted
now we are separated, our friendship ended

but such is life, mysterious as the pyramids
we might have a little knowledge of what was and ifs
but the truth is, we're so weak and flawed
in our quest we'd never succeed

I am thinking, what a waste of my efforts and my hopes
if only words don't hurt, I'd be a glorious walk
tonight I might dream, it's all an illusion
might as well be for I am ready for the new morn

but what if....that's only a question

I tell my friend from time to time that we spend time with the people we love. My last encounter with him left me with a bum foot for a week because he like to drive a lot and four hours cramped with it against a cooler I had left it hurting, but I still enjoyed my time, even though it left me running late with another friend. I hope you had fun with your friend, and I'm sorry for your loss.hug

Mac I'm sorry about the pain you had on your feet.

Well thanks but for now we're friends again. Hahaha sometimes we do things that are strange and quite lose our sense of what is right. wave

For some people they can't lose who they never had such is my case. People are loyal and friendly only of their need of you. Once their needs change so does their loyalty.

And some people don't realise what they had until they lost it. dunno

"For some people they can't lose who they never had such is my case. People are loyal and friendly only of their need of you. Once their needs change so does their loyalty."

It's a waste of life being bitter forever. Recover from your past and let a new day begin. You maybe surprise to know that with every dawn it's a new beginning.
