Just When I Needed You ღ KKD ღ

Just When I Needed You

Where is that support
I could always depend upon
Where is that shoulder
I could always lean on.

Where are the arms
that always protected
Yes the very same ones
that have now retreated

And now...
You can't find your way
to let them encircle me
and just make it all go away

From you
I drew such strength
The you
I just knew would go the

Yet today I stand
feeling more alone than ever
What happened to my bridge
that carried me across each troubled river

The loss of a lover
is much easier to bare
Than the loss of a friend
with whom everything I did share

So many questions
met with such dead silence
Searching for peace with in
only to find absence

Yes your betrayal
was the worst that could be done
but when it comes to friends
all battles can be won

How could what was shared
be so easy to sell.
Oh I understand the embarrassment
when from your pedestal you fell

I am at a road with no left or right
I look for my friend and find but a ghost
It was your choice to violate my trust
But you took my friend when I needed him most.

You just left me....

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
 I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
