Forever together, unaware of their fate,
Happy they were and in blissful ignorance,
But true to their natures they were destined to separate,
And instead of friendship, betrayal was to take place.
The shock of this betrayal shook her soul,
That unexpected treachery struck her blind,
All that was left for her was to flop down and howl,
And hope that her beloved friend would respond in kind.
But that was a hope that went in vain,
Because she was made to be left alone,
Friendless she was now and was left to endure the pain,
With the grief of her lonely life to be quietly borne.
Cursing about why she should lose her only friend,
And why betrayal was to be written in her fate,
All the happy times had come to an end,
And she became as lonely as she could get.
Her life had now become a burden to bear,
Living to her seemed so worthless,
No one seemed to love her, no one did care,
With thoughts of death she became obsessed.
The friend who betrayed her didn’t remain happy for long,
Realization of her sin now dawned upon her,
The feeling of repentance now swept her along,
And she really regretted leaving her friend in a lurch.
Tearful and sorry her friend she went to find,
She wanted all the good times once more,
For now those happy memories had started flashing in her mind,
And she hoped for more happiness in store.
On arriving at her friend’s with horror she saw,
That she had realized her mistake too late,
For her friend lay on the bed lifeless now,
With a sweet, small smile on her face.
To her face which was so lifeless and white,
The smile gave unexpected beauty and peace,
The horrified friend nearly fainted at that sight,
And her flowing tears refused to cease.
The smile on the face seemed to say a lot,
Some important words were getting unfurled,
And in this one smile the dead friend sought,
A way to tell her friend her unspoken words.
“My beloved friend you betrayed me,
And left me alone to live my life,
But life without my friend has no meaning,
And hope that in heaven we unite…”
