My Friend, I Understand, Merry Christmas

My Friend, I Understand, Merry Christmas

My friend, in my heart I didn’t mean to make you cry,
I was just being very honest with myself with what I wrote.
Numerous times I lied to myself with false hope and illusions,
And I am tired of denying my peace with breaking out conclusions.

You have felt my emotions cry from deep inside of me,
While I have been selfish to acknowledge what I have lost.
In my mind, in my heart, and in my soul I have let you down,
Because I should be thankful for always making time to be around.

Every time that I have fallen I have made attempts to stand,
Weaken have been my ankles as I barely right myself halfway up.
Shameful thoughts of guilt continue to visit my endearing lonely nights,
And the sun doesn’t seem to penetrate the dark curtains to let in the sunlight.

My friend, please forgive me for spilling my tears on you shoulders so often,
Many things I’ve said maybe I should have kept to myself and not grief.
I should understand that I am not the only one who tears so much,
But you are so nice to care, and shows up for me in the clutch.

I know that by now the healing should have taken place inside my broken heart,
But being truthful to you and me is the real person that I have inside of me.
I cannot be your friend by telling lies and covering my daily emotions,
It would be painful to hear evil words in half truths in commotions.

No, you do not deserve to hear my call in pain if your ears need time to heal,
I am sorry that I have dragged you along so far without a hope for me.
My shattered heart is still weak and it is alright to let go my hand,
Because as friends you need your strength and I understand.

My friend, before you let go let me say these kind words,
That if it were not for you my legs would not hold me halfway.
Your compassioned words, your heart of gold always reduced my pain,
And I want to thank you for letting our minds meet and that you are not drained.

Go in peace, enjoy your life, share the moments with your wonderful family,
Let these holidays enter your soul and smile for the things you do have.
Have a Merry Christmas and a thankful pleasant Happy New Year,
You will always be a friend and as a friend, for you I’ll be here.
