Come and gone

You were my best friend Until it came to an end. We were together almost everyday. Then you said good bye in a very unusual way. I saw you around, happy with others. I stayed alone, wondering what had happened to my brother. But there was a part of me that wanted something more. There was another part of me that wanted you to open up that door. I miss the long afternoons we spent. To me our friendship was heavens sent. Since the days of our youth, I have been unable to tell you the truth. When we first met, i didn't think we would last very long. Still, somehow.... our friendship remained strong. I loved everything we used to do. We used to dance, sing and spend time with just us two. When you left me, without saying why. I looked towards the skies, in search of some sort of clue. My heart was hurting and when I too was beginning a new I wanted to say something, but my words were only just a few. Still to this day I think of you. I have not forgotten the kids we used to be. I have not forgotten the days we always felt so open and free. You were always the one I wished would stay by my side. The days when I wanted to find you, it seemed like you would rather up and hide. And yet still I think of you. I think of all the things we used to do. I will never forget you, and how you started a new. Then one day, after many many years, a miracle came and I was reunited with you yet again. I loved how you still remembered me. I loved how you kept the things that mattered and made sure that they did not return to me all battered and tattered. You will always be my best childhood friend. I just hope I get a chance to see you again, before life as we both know it.....comes to an end.
