Poetic Justice

I've lost something very precious today,
I've lost something that never ever was;
I have lost the core of my soul today
And I mourn in despair for my sad loss.

I have lost what I once believed was true,
I've lost what I once thought would surely be;
I have lost what I have believed in for years
And I cry out in my sorrow-why me!

A lugubrious expression on my face,
I do try in vain to our story retrace…

The memories are hazy, but very strong
And I woefully wonder, "What…what went wrong?"

Teary-eyed I remember those parties-
Oh, the fun…the joy…the laughter-so hearty!

Our school festival-how we danced! How we sang!
And throughout the day and night, our voices rang!

I just don't see why…No…I just don't see how.

You now confess that you've just been using me,
And my heart cries out aloud, "How can that be!"

I trusted you! Oh, I confided in you!
Now that you're gone, what am I supposed to do?
I believed you…
When you told me that I was your best friend.
I believed you…
When you said our friendship would never end.
My heart would skip a beat
Each and every time you'd give me that smile.
