Dear Old Friend

Hey pain it's been awhile

You used to show your face every day

I almost forgot how to smile

Unlike most you’re constant and I long for you to stay

I remember times you’d take my breath away

You were there through all my tribulations and trials

Music and you were my best friends when I was a child

You were the push I needed to come to the edge

You were what prevented me from jumping

Till death do us part is my pledge

I'd rather have you than nothing

So thank you for showing your face

My other feelings felt so out of place

Please don't ever leave me again

Lest this unwanted happiness should begin

True friends stick it out until the end.
