Poem for a friend leaving for better things :)
You arrived with your heart in your hands
With security in your plans, you were strong
You brought with you for the world, a fist full of demands
A determination to get you to where you belong.
But wandering through on the way to that place
You sometimes lost the path on your headstrong way
Then that determination would be missing from your face
And at those times I let you down, when you needed me to say...
You are beautiful in the way that you look and are
You are kind, and have been there to lift me from falls
Your strength in your convictions, will make you shine like a star
and although everything you've always dreamed of now calls...
I will always be here and owe you everything I can give
Because you accepted me and the ways I'm naive
And I know that this is your chance to go and really live
But I'm not sure how I'm going to be strong and watch you leave.
So remember when your either having the time of your life
Or struggling to get up and move on after a tumble
It's only the best that rise above pain and strife
And your undoubtably the best, no matter how many times you stumble.
Don't cry because your leaving things behind
Or because your thinking of everyone you'll miss
Theres so many new opportunities for you to find
I expect to hear about every performance, heartbreak or new kiss :)
Lastly, Your loved because you never give in, or give up
So when you arrive at your new start, make sure your eyes are dry
Because I'll miss more than skiving off sports, and your tea in my special cup
But don't you dare ever think, this is goodbye.
