A Poem About Lost Friendship

She was lost and lonely and

You found her

 

She was funny and spirited and

You liked her

 

She was smart and witty and

You smiled at her

 

She was awkward and loud but

You befriended her

 

She was not always easy to be around but

You championed her

 

She was not always invited by others but

You added her

 

She was often talked about but

You supported her

 

She repeatedly went too far but

You were a crutch for her

 

She was often laughed at but

You sheltered her

 

She was rude and clumsy but

You embraced her

 

She was socially inept but

You defended her

 

She was rude behind your back but

You kept on being nice to her

 

She had no idea what people thought but

You thought the best of her

 

She was depressed and sad but

You were there for her

 

She was ungrateful and mean but

You helped her

 

She was draining and abusive but

You believed in her

 

She was angry and rude but

You tried to balance her

 

She was jealous and bitter but

You were gracious to her

 

She was hurtful and spiteful but

You always saw the best in her

 

She said too many things that friends just don’t say and

She did too many things that friends just don’t do and

You reached the end with her.
