Explanation To A Friend


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2007 with permission of the author.

I look at you and smile, because I haven't seen you in a while.
The distance is tearing us apart.
But I can hold the memories in heart.
I hate being this far away.
I feel like I can't express the things I need to say.
People say things that aren't true.
So no matter what I'm sticking with you.
Whether you like it or not I'll always be here,
to wipe away every single tear.
Whenever you need me, you know where I'll be.
I'm always in some crazy memory.
Your pictures are up on my wall. I kept them all.
You really don't know what you mean to me,
but hopefully this explanation will make you see.
I could never stay mad at you.
You're special in everything you do.
You've taught me a lot of lessons,
and I'm thankful for all of your blessings.
It's just that I try to be happy,
but the more I try the more everyone hates me.
It's like the harder I work, the more they take,
the more I heal, the more they break.
The happier I get, the more miserable they are.
Sometimes I get so close but feel so far.
All I'm asking is please don't hurt me.
I'm hurting where only I can see.
I wish I could tell you all the things I want to say.
I wish you were here with me everyday.
I know some things I did to you were cruel.
Believe me when I say I was a fool.
So please just give me another try.

One of my good friends heard I had a boyfriend. Apparently, he liked me and got really upset, so of course I felt bad and started looking for something to say to him. That's when I came on here and I read this poem and fell in love with it. It almost made me cry. I will be sending this to him so he knows I was sorry and I didn't want him to get hurt by my actions.

So sad. I'm crying this poem touched my heart all I can say is that the person who wrote this is a great poet. God bless her I'm going to read this to my friend, at least she used to be. I think this poem will make her best friends with me again.

Me and my best friend have been thought so much. When she liked this boy I came between them and messed up what we had. She didn't talk to me for awhile but now we are just friends and I won't ever hurt her again.

Me and my friend pranked each other and one prank made her cry but she said she was joking so the next day at school we didn't talk at all because of that prank the stupidest thing in life are pranks that can tear someone you love away.

I thought I was the only one. I pranked a friend as well and he was mad afterwards, which I don't blame him for, but I didn't expect him to stay mad and completely ghost me. I sent this to him and hopefully he got it, but even if he did, I doubt he cares. I'm still in this dilemma and I'm not sure what to do. Pranks are really dumb. Don't do them unless you know they can handle it.

I absolutely love this poem, when I first read it I almost cried! It reminds me of my friend who turned her back on me, and it's exactly something I would say to apologize!!!! :D <3
