Friendship Poem

Friends Forever

Hey! I wrote this when my best friend for 6 years choose a group of popular girls over me, and I had to watch her change, over the course of a couple months, into somebody totally different.

Do You Ever Remember?

© Emily
Friends forever,
Do you remember saying that together?
Do you remember making angels in the snow?
Sitting and watching the sunset glow?

Do you remember what you used to say?
That you would be there for me every single day?
Do you remember when you would grab my hand and we would run off to play,
I think of that while I ask for you to come back to me when I pray

Do you ever look back?
And wish you hadn't?
Do you ever remember?
Or wish we were still friends forever?

I do.

When you meet those girls,
Did you ever think this would happen?
That it would make you dampen?
That you would start to ignore me?
Tell me that friends forever could no longer be?

That you would spread rumors,
Because they thought it was cool?
That you would make boys fight over you, in a pathetic duel?

Do you remember when we thought those guys were jerks?

I do.

You stabbed me in the back,
You threw my life off track,
I thought you were my friend,
But that has come to an end,

I just want to know, do you ever regret it?
Do you ever want to mend it?
Do you ever remember?

I do.

    it feels like I wrote that description myself. I know exactly what that feels like.

    I love this! It perfectly describes what has been going on between me and my best friend for the past year. She started hanging out with this girl who I absolutely hate, and she knows that. She always has known that. At first it just bothered me a little. But as time went on my friend started completely ignoring me. And when we finally got to spend a little bit of time together she was texting that other girl the whole time. I talked to her about it and how much it really did bother me, and she assured me that we'd always be best friends and nothing would ever change that. But I know now that that's not true. A couple weeks ago, after spending a day out without school, she was just all mad at me saying that I was acting mad all day. And I told her she had been ignoring me all day. And she was just like, whatever. And I was like yeah, whatever, you have been for months so it's not like it's big deal. She just doesn't see it. She doesn't see that we're really not friends anymore. I don't even know if I would want to be friends with her again after all she's put me through.

    I completely understand, my friend and I knew each other since we both were born. We were best friends and did everything together, until something happened and I don't know what. Forth grade year was basically the last time we really talked. I miss her and all the moments we spent together. It gets better, you will find someone that means so much more to you then she ever did.
