Fairwell Fairweather Friend

I thought he was a friend and I was wrong.
We seemed inseparable so much time spent.
When troubled times came it was a new song.

I do know that true friends are heaven sent.
To me friendship is a really big deal
We seemed inseparable so much time 

I am not sure how I'm suppose to feel
This is a kind of hurt that cuts real deep
To me friendship is a really big deal

In my mind there are memories I keep
I expected him to always be here
This is a kind of hurt that cuts real deep

Friends are like our reflections in the mirror
We need them to see who we really are
I expected him to always be here

True friends are friends wether near or far
We need them to see who we really are
I thought he was a friend and I was wrong
When troubled times came it was a new song

    This is very sad... It's heart wrenching when a friendship ends this way. You penned it beautifully. I also wanted to thank you for your comment on my poem "25." You really made my day with those sweet words. Anyone would be so lucky to have a friend like you, Rick!

    Thanks Heather, that is a very nice thing to say. When it comes to friends I have been very blessed. I am sure you have been as well, I can feel the warmth in your personality and writing.

    It's sad to find people that only tag along when things are fun... and when the crap hits the fan, they act like they don't even know you. You are really tackling a lot of angles on friendships as of late! Keep it up :)

    Richard, Disappointment comes with expectation. I have been tossing a poem around in my blender brain that is a similar theme. Thank you for the inspiration

    Richard...I've posted a poem on the same theme quite some time ago... Fairweather Friends. Wow. You know what they say about brilliant minds....Just kidding. Great write...on a tough topic. I lost a friend recently...so glad it wasn't forever. :)
