You found someone to replace me,

Maybe they’re better than we,

But, did you forget we were childhood friends?

And then you’d made some amends.


You said I was like a sister to you

And I was foolish enough to believe you’d meant that true,

But though you didn’t mean it to be,

You were like a brother to me.


You already told me that you were sure when you said yes,

Even though you had other best friends, you’d treat me not any less.


Tried so hard to be everything that you wanted me to be

Just for you to see how much you mean to me,

Got all your favorite things by heart

Just to see how much we've grown apart.

Don't you think I cared about you too much to be just lied too?

Don't you think I cared about you too much to think I deserve nothing through?

I'd say you broke my heart,

But you broke much more than that.


And maybe I'm just not as easy to understand

As who your best friends now,

But God, you couldn't have cared less,

About someone who cared about you more.


You always say that I’m sensitive,

But didn’t care about that when you left.

Stupid, emotional, obsessive little me

I knew from the start this is exactly how you’d leave.


But don't tell me you're sorry,

Cause that’s not going to fix what you’ve done

You lost someone who cared about you so much without no cost,

And one day I hope you realize who you had lost.


I just wonder,

Was it all a blunder?

Or just has my name ever crossed your mind?

Maybe I was just blind.


We walk past each other

Just to rediscover,

It’s like we’ve never met before,

Like neither of us care.

I thought we’ll at least be,

Good friends, you and me

But things aren’t going as planned.


Cause all I ever wanted was to be close to you,

Cause all I ever wanted was to care for you,

Cause all I ever wanted was to be enough for you,

And all I ever just wanted was to be a best friend to you…

WOW!!! This is so touchy. I couldn't believe that he/she (I guess he's a boy, coz u said he was like a brother to you) left someone like you. Is this true? If it is, don't give-up sis. Your old best friend will know your pure thoughts someday.
Great job Nithu... To be honest, I am Speechless !
