My Friend

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today
For today was her first date
She had forgotten all her makeup
And was afraid of being late

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today
For he was a bad kisser
She was afraid that they might not fit
And that he might not even miss her

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today,
For he said he had to study
And because of this he could not meet her
For their weekly date to the sea

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today,
For another girl was with him
She couldn't form a coherent thought
So I told her I'd talk to him

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today,
Tears of joy and tears of happiness
For it had only been his sister
And now her mind could rest

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today
For from their relationship she had run
So I lent her my shoulder to cry on
As many times before I had done

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today
For she thought she'd never have another
A person to date, a person to kiss
(She ignored I'd never even been on a date)

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today
Her sights too blurred to see
She didn't notice my tears
And instead cried on the shoulder of me

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today
She didn't ask about mine
Or notice I was mourning
But I asked about her's, just to be kind

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today
Her eyes leaked crystal rain
While last night, in crimson droplets
I had let go of my pain

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today
She was too caught up in herself
To notice the scars and bandages
Lingering on the wrists of myself

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today
Happy raindrops, falling gently
For she'd meet her "soulmate,"
And then an idea struck me like a silver key

My friend, her eyes were filled with tears today
Her sights too blurred to see,
But really, you'll understand
For today t'was the funeral of me.
