We Barely Talk Now. (For Ellie Fleming)

We have been through it all, yet ran in different circles,
I was there for you, your brother and mother.
We would talk all night, be strangers during the day,
I have seen you at your best and your undeniable worst.

Eliza, ever wondered how?
We became good friends,
Yet we barely talk now,
I know all of their secrets,
Your hopes and all their dreams,
I miss your smile that was as bright as the sun's beams.

I helped you through your heartbreak, the moments you tried to give in,
How was yours and Sarah's gap year?
We were united against a common enemy,
But where did we let it slip?

Eliza, ever wondered how?
We became good friends,
Yet we barely talk now,
I know all of their secrets,
Your hopes and all their dreams,
I miss your smile that was as bright as the sun's beams.

Eliza,
Imagine if we had a different narrative?
Eliza,
I'd rather see smiles and hear cheers,
Instead of wasting time on tears,
Platonic support is all I could offer up,
We held on and now we're not together, it's all gone.

Eliza, ever wondered how?
We became good friends,
Yet we barely talk now,
I know all of their secrets,
Your hopes and all their dreams,
I miss your smile that was as bright as the sun's beams.
