Don't Want To Know
That's about how long you've been my best friend.
The first two months, we saw each other, but rarely talked.
I sat at my desk, wanting to talk to you, but couldn't.
But now, it's so easy to talk to you; be myself around you.
Through our past times, we've done many things together,
And now, we have had to move on with our lives; onto greater things.
We knew that this day would come;
we could see it coming around the corner, from three years away.
Our expectation of what things would be like was above what has actually become.
We were worried that things would change between us,
We were hoping that everything would stay the same.
We have busier lives; picking up the phone isn't always an easy task.
I've tried to bring my mind to believe that it's good to not be 'inseparable' but I feel as though if I do, then I will be losing my best friend forever.
Distance shouldn't make a difference for best friends, but it does.
Sometimes, it seems as though our friendship has drifted.
But, I don't want it to.
I want things to be the way they used to be…
Talking all the time, laughing for no apparent reason,
All of these memories, I know I'll carry them always in my heart.
I can go back and play them over again in my head, so make it seem as though everything is the way it used to be.
If I could, I would build a time machine and replay all of the wonderful times that we have had together.
I don't want to know what it would be like to not be your best friend.
No matter if things change, we should always remember that best friends can always be remembered and are always in your heart.
Even for, one thousand, three hundred, and forty five days.
