A childhood friendship that is torn apart.

Twelve years of memories I know I’ll never forget

Beginning in fifth grade when we first met


Laughing, crying, and sharing dreams

Taking chances and going to extremes


“Count On Me” – was “our” song

Until Petey Pablo’s “Raise It Up” came along


Mrs. Carigg’s class, 7th grade, and DC nights

So many laughs and even a couple fights


Through the broken hearts, disagreements and tears

It was always me and you throughout the years


Such an unbreakable bond, or so I thought

We were best friends, in case you forgot.


Unexpectantly, life intervened and tore us apart

Leaving me with an unfillable void in my heart


Betrayal, heartache, an unforgettable fight

Too stubborn and hurt to try and make it right


But this time, there isn’t much point to even try

There’s little hope that we’ll ever see eye to eye


Now things are not the same as they were when we were 10

At times I wish I could go back to how they were back then


A time when you were my pillar, standing beside me, strong

Always there, holding me up whenever anything went wrong


Maybe our friendship was never meant to last

Maybe I should just leave it all in the past


Maybe we finally had to learn to stand on our own

To be able to get by without the other on the phone


Though our friendship is over, it’s one I’ll never forget

Although it hurts now, it’s not something I regret


The playground and Boulevard will forever remind me of you

And a time when our friendship couldn’t have been more true


The memories of our times together will never be erased

The space in my heart for youwill never be replaced

I may never have another best friend like you and that’s alright with me

You’re my irreplaceable, unforgettable friend, and that’s the way it will always be

I had a friend from preschool till 7th grade and we could never be seperated. That changed and now we barely ever talk. It's true that you have to enjoy the time you have. Very well written!

I could really feel the emotion tear away from the screen when I read this. This is another one of your poems I've read that you really seem to put your heart into. It's just beautiful, no other way to describe it.

This deserves a ton more "Like Its", so may I be the first.
