Gone

Published: October 2007

Emotions ran through my head.
I found myself wishing I was dead
All because you were moving away.
I knew I would never see you another day.

You got in your car and waved goodbye,
And then I was left all alone to cry.
I felt helpless and all alone.
I could only talk to you on the phone.

You were my neighbor and my best friend.
Why, oh why, did it have to end?
You made me so happy, so carefree.
You made it feel okay for me to be me.

It's been almost a year since you moved away,
But it feels like it was only yesterday.
I remember everything you used to do.
It may seem impossible, but it's true.

You were the best friend I ever had.
Now that you left me, I am beyond sad.
I love and I miss you more than you'll ever know.
You've taught me so much, and I want to say thank you.
