It seems that my mom and I were going through a rough patch here. As cheesy as it is, I still hope I was being sincere when I wrote it. But it’s quite possible I was in some kind of trouble and was being a manipulative little shit, knowing she wouldn’t stay mad if I wrote a touching, heart-felt poem for her.
I never meant for it to be this way,
I don’t know where we went wrong,
I never meant to grow up,
But they don’t let you stay young too long.
In my mind I always go back,
To the things we used to share,
And please don’t tell me that I don’t,
Because you know I care.
It’s so hard to say I’m sorry,
When I’ve hurt someone like you,
And I can’t take back the things I’ve said,
No matter how much I want to.
The damage has already been done,
So let’s not do any more,
Each time the pain is awful,
And it’s left me just too sore.
Please don’t feel left out,
‘Cause I don’t tell you everything,
Sometimes I just need a friend,
Who knows exactly what I mean.
I always come to you for advice,
You’ve helped more than I can say,
But things are so much different now,
Than they were in your day.
Now I have a hole in me,
Right where you used to be,
Please com back and be my friend,
I need you desperately.
