One Friend Left

I always thought you were the best

I guess I always will.

I always felt that we were blessed,

And I feel that way still.”

It has been a long time since we’ve been friends. We were shy then. We didn’t talk that much. And you weren’t still telling me those jokes yet, forcing me to laugh because they are not funny at all (Haha). But fortunately we got to know each other more and I am glad we did.

“Sometimes we took the hard road,

But we always saw it through.

If I had only one friend left,

I’d want it to be you.”

        As we created our own paths journeying through life, we had been facing rough times and those not so smooth sails. We had encountered different challenges the universe gave us. But we still managed to surpass all of these, because we worked hand in hand.

“Sometimes the world was on our side;

Sometimes it wasn’t fair.

Sometimes it gave a helping hand’

Sometimes we didn’t care.”

        Even though odds were not always in our favor, we never left each other. Splitting had never been our option. Perhaps, we learned how to not live without each other. It’s the only the “dependence” that I had loved so far.

That I could move a mountain”

Someone to tell to it to.

If I had only one friend left,

I’d want it to be you.

        As time passed by, I had proved to myself that I can do anything for you and that I cannot do anything without you. With you, I am a towering mountain. Without you, I am just a mere speck of dust.

“’Cause when we were together,

It made the dream come true.

If I had only one friend left,

I’d want it to be you.”

        The feeling is just so different when I spend my time with you. It feels like a dream, a dream wherein I don’t want to wake up but instead, live this dream with you. 

“Someone who understands me,

And knows me inside out.

And it helps keep me together,

And believes without a doubt,” 

        Well, I do have other friends and you do too. But it’s just that I feel incomplete when you’re not here. You are the most understanding person I have ever had. And the most caring, because even in the darkest of times, you still show me the light where I find happiness.

“That I could move a mountain:

Someone to tell it to.

If I had only one friend left,

I’d want it to be you.”

       But now everything has changed. Maybe because someone makes you happier now than I do or maybe you just got tired of having me. What a terrible turn of events indeed. But I promise, I will always be here whatever it takes because if I had only one friend left, I’d want it to be you. [Dear Friend]
