Now What.....“Hello, how are you?”
“Fine thanks, and you?”
Do you ever stop to wonder if that’s really true?
I’ll tell you I’m okay because if you care, you’d read between the lines
If you really knew me, you’d look me in the eyes
You’d automatically know that I’m not so fine
So I’ll write you this letter, good friend
It’ll tell you how I won’t be okay in the end
We always take people, events and things for granted
That’s why our feet never bother to get unplanted
You’ve heard the phrase ‘you never know a good thing until it’s gone?’
Well, that’s been proving true for me in the long run
After all the anxiety you’ve put me through
I’ve got to admit, I honestly miss you
You meant so much in so many ways
I never thought you’d be the one to throw it away
You were funny, strong-spirited and so close to perfect
We were best friends and had our fights, but there was always a sure fix
We’d listen to music, we’d sing hours on end
I miss how we’d laugh when we played pretend
You told me your secrets and I told you mine
Now I can’t imagine things being even close to so fine
Now what do I do?
Now where do I go?
From here on out, I may never know
It’s been over a year since we’ve hung out
A year far too long, and so I’m starting to doubt
So, in this letter, I’ve got lots left to say
It’s a shame to think you might throw this paper away
You’d give me make fun of me, and I’d curse you out
Two things of which I can’t say I’m proud
As we grew older, we grew apart
Something which may have dug a hole in my heart
In the beginning, there was never a problem we couldn’t settle
And nothing had stopped us from trying to mettle
So how are you, old friend?
Do you miss me too?
Do you honestly miss the days when I would break my heart for you?
I know that I am sincere when I say
All of this pointless drama has gotten in the way
What we had was special, the way we were on top of the world
You saw me when I wasn’t so put together
When I was just a scared little girl
I know I’ll trust you forever
But will you ever trust me?
This battle’s built up a stonewall between us
Is there any way to set us free?
So now I’ll conclude just by starting the countdown
Do you remember that familiar sound?
Goodbye, good friend
I miss you a lot
I wish we didn’t have to let go of all that we’ve got
Sincerely and serenely, always your friend
I know you will make it big in the end
Your dreams and aspirations inspire me so
Oh, and P.S: Don’t forget not to let go
