Garreth, I miss you

Like a summers day, I’ll miss you, I don’t want to say goodbye, like the summer days ,I’ll miss you , seasons change but we must try, how can I forget, I’ll miss you”, I heard myself singing a song by Nana Mouskouri.
I thought of how we fought over your choice of a new friend and felt left out of your life. I was there for you when you were without a friend as was I.

I sang the song and changed some of the words to fit how I felt about what was happening in our friendship, how we both let it slip and slide, I blamed you and you blamed me, we both said things we didn’t mean.

“I don’t want to say goodbye”, I sang again to the top of my lungs. How could I ever forget you, though I feel left behind, not needed anymore.

And so neither of us said the words, but we knew the end was neigh.
I kept hoping you would call, but you had outgrown me I suppose. Like the summers days, I’ll miss you, I knew that I had tried, how could I forget you, I’ll miss you.
My Forever friend, I won’t have to miss you.

    Heartbreaking and lovely all at once. I love how musical Ficlets has become all of a sudden.

    Nicely described with just a hint of bitterness but mostly melancholy. I usually moved before this could happen, but I think I know what you mean.
    LoA

    I’ve seen a few friendships end so similarly to this. It really struck a nerve. You say things you don’t mean, but really it’s not you that’s changed it’s there’s this new person in the equation and it disturbs equilibrium somehow. You just wish it could go back to how it was. Great job!

    thebetween space aptly put it.. I agree wholeheartedly. I know a lil bit of the “back story” And it breaks my heart. Somehow it affects me too.. Good job! beautiful story about a drastic change in a friendship. I can relate completely.
