The Day You Left

If I could go back

to the day you left,

things would be so different.

I would let you know

of the things unsaid,

How much you really helped me.

I would have appreciated

all of our times together,

I wouldn’t want them to end.

I hadn’t known

you leaving would mean,

you wouldn’t come back to me.

Now that you’re gone

I wish I had known,

those times would be our last.


I had a friend who I knew in middle school but really didn’t become friends with until high school. To be honest, I don’t know what it was that got us to start talking, but we did and we really hit it off. It could have been us having mutual friends in middle school and they fact that they all went to a different high school and we were the only two from our group that went to our high school.

However, my best friend at the time went to a different high school and I was dedicated in keeping that friendship close. If I was invited to both friends house, I would go to the one from the other high school. We will call the one from the other high school, C. The one from the high school I went to is, L.

There were problems among both friend groups and it seemed like Me and L were the only one’s that didn’t argue with each other. We got close in high school, but I still had it in my heart that C was my best friend and I needed to keep that friendship the closest. If me and C got into an argument and L saw the unfairness that was being brought to me, I would disregard what she had to say. I would be offended that she would even make comments about how C could be.

Now I have so many regrets. I wish I had seen the type of friend L was to me and how she was dedicated to me and I could always count on her to be there for me. The friendship with C ended not long after we graduated from high school. She wasn’t the friend that I thought she was going to be. I thought she was the one that I was going to remain friends with forever, but she thought differently. L was always the one that would remain my friend. But now she is gone and moved to a different state and has a family of her own. The friend that had been there for me is no longer right down the road from me and I wish I didn’t take for granted the friendship she had to offer. Those days of choosing C over L are my biggest regrets and I wish I had taken the time to build my relationship up with L.

So, my advice would be, take a look at the people around you. Who are the one’s that are actually there for you. Who can tell it like it is and doesn’t sugar coat things for you, that give you the advice that would be better for you. Not the one’s that only add negativity to your life. Choose the friend like L. They are the one’s that will always be there for you. Just because you think one friend is the friend that will be there forever, isn’t necessarily how it will be in the end.
