How can it seem like just yesterday,
You and I were sitting in study hall,
As they joked about us being so perfect for each other?
How can I remember so vividly,
The look on your face,
And touch of your hand,
As I wept when we broke up?
How can I replay,
Those fights we had over your habits and mine,
And recall how we cared so much?
Why haven’t I forgotten,
Just how my heart felt,
When you told me, even in anger, “I care!”
And, “Because you’re one of my best friends?”
How could we have let that slip between our fingers,
And move on with our lives,
As if that special connection,
Was never even there?
If you miss my friendship,
Like I miss yours,
And if you need my friendship,
Like I need yours.
What if I let this slip away,
Can I go through my life without you there?
Can you go through yours without me?
If you remember,
Speaking my language,
And knowing just what I was thinking,
No matter how hard I tried to hide it.
If you care.
