To Lose a Friend
!The full length original version is here, I however decided to omit some passages!
People come into our lives
To serve some purpose or reason
Then they are gone like a puff of wind
Receding like the ending season.
There are times when friendships end
When nothing can hold them together
When uninvited feelings get in the way
Stirring up stormy weather.
One friend might begin to think
We can mend this gap if we try
But it takes two to bridge the breach
To avoid saying that final goodbye.
To lose a friend is such a hard thing to do
When there is no answer to our “why”
An emptiness grows deeply inside.
As we breathe goodbye on an empty sigh.
