Life of the Party

You sit there next to her

And a pang of jealousy hits

I had hoped to talk to you tonight

We used to talk a lot

Now she monopolizes all your time

And I am left feeling alone

Without a friend who used to help

Lost without your guidance

You had a knowledge beyond your years

And could calm my fears with a few words

I guess you didn’t really care

As much as you said you did

But I still miss you to this day

And will forever more

As you have made it clear

Our friendship was just

A brief moment in time

And that time has now passed
