We met each other in elementry,
We were only nine or ten.
Sometimes we spent full days together,
You became one of my closest friends.
You moved away a few years after,
We promised we'd still talk on the phone.
But not seeing you daily just wasn't fair,
And you told me you felt so alone.
Months went by and you made new friends,
And I had made some too.
The conversations slowed almost to none,
I had almost forgotten about me and you.
One day I recieved a phone call,
It was from a friend that we both had.
He was talking very slowly, told me to sit down,
He almost sounded mad.
"Something happened to David in school", he said,
I could tell he already cried.
"He colapsed in the hall outside the door,
He stopped breathing... Brittney, he died."
I stood in shock, I didn't say good-bye,
I couldn't even move.
I didn't understand why it happened to him,
He was such a good friend to loose.
From that day on, my life had changed,
And I still miss him so much.
I make a point to talk to friends,
I'll always stay in touch.
