I stand here in shock, not knowing what to do;
I cannot believe the feelings I’ve caught here from you.
Memories from the past overwhelm my weary mind,
But now, in chains, these memories they do bind.
My hands to you, we were reaching for the stars.
My dreams, our friendship, now you have scarred.
The distance you’ve placed, this I do not understand.
Between us, our sisterhood, is it now banned?
The anger, the jealousy, I pray it does not last.
So many questions I’m left with, only not to ask.
This brokenness and pain, I wish I did not feel.
They all say it takes way too much time to heal.
As I stand here with this bleeding heart,
I pray that one day we have a brand new start.
God can cleanse, forgive and always can mend,
But it takes you and me with this friendship to tend.
