What just happened today?

I'm still in shock

The closest person I have to a friend

Just up and went away.

Why didn't I tell him then

What I've figured out now?

It's too late for all those words

And I really wouldn't know how

To tell him what he meant to me

Though even I don't know

I think I may have liked him

But emotions move too slow.

So afraid he'd laugh

So afraid I'd cry

Rejection is always the worst

So I didn't even try.

The sand is slipping from under me

Now that he's gone away

I need him here to hold me close

And tell me it's okay...

But what now?
