Old Friend

By chance we met
We became friends at first
And best friends later
We shared everything with each other
The good, the bad, happy and sad..
It was all beautiful until that day..
The day he came into your life
Was the worst day of my life
You shared your good times with him
You gave him your valuable kisses
You gave him your all, and then some
I waited in vain for your messages
All I wanted was to hear your voice
To fill up this void you left in me
My life was never the same
Then there was trouble in your paradise..
He hurt you over and over again
But you loved him too much
You couldnt let go
He made you shed your precious tears
He took all your love
And never gave it back
Then you remembered me..
The one that was always there
The one that always cared
Always in his shadow, watching you
Crying invisible tears each time he hurt you
You came to me with your pain..
I became your tower of strength
I wiped your tears when you cried
I made you strong so that you could stand on your own
I put the sun back in your sky
I gave you wings to make you fly
And then you flew..
Away from me again
You reopened the void
You took away my sun
You left me in the cold again
You have forgotten me..
But I will never forget you
I always loved you
And I always will 
Goodbye old friend...
