For a Friend

We swung our swords at each other, my friend
From our mouths spilled the poison to our ears
We wounded our hearts, our friendship, my friend
Our one path now forked in the midst of tears
Is there a way where our bridge could be saved?
Our bond unbroken and our faith contained?
You dwell in anger while my heart is graved
Between us only this silence remained
Forgive me if I never understood
Yet you never tried to explain clearly
Perhaps I failed to please you like I should
It is not a fault for me to be me
Forgive me, my friend, that's all I can say
Farewell, my friend, I'll miss you all the way
