Old Friend

Old friend I see your back

my heart was not ready for attack

I was happy or a moment

I am slow to learn

happiness never lasts

I don't know why I am surprised

It obvious just from my past

my moment of bliss was bound to end

Can I ask on thing, old friend

will you ever leave for good

I truly think you should
