Goodbye My Dearest Friend

The world just didn’t understand you;
no one sang the song quite the same way.
You tried to carve out your own place;
but it got too hard and you couldn’t stay.

The world always drove you insane;
too many people were too cruel.
You tried to ignore the abuse,
but in the end they crushed your heart.

I love you just the way you are.
I embrace all your beautiful scars.
With me there’s no need to pretend;
I’ll be your friend until the end.

Dry your eyes.
Hold you close.

It’s just too hard to say goodbye;
I kiss your cold cheek while you fly.
It breaks my heart to let you go;
I always thought we would grow old.

Goodbye my dearest friend;
I see the blade shine.
Unsure how I didn’t see your desire to leave.
We fought against the world;
you bleed like rich wine.
Once you made your choice all I could do was grieve.

Goodbye my dearest friend;
I love you just the way you are.
Goodbye my dearest friend;
I embrace all your beautiful scars.
