i still remember how you made me smile,
how you managed to make me laugh for 30 minutes straight,
how you'd always care about me,
and especially how you would pick me up during my toughest times

you made me feel things i've never felt before
you've helped me develop into a better person,
a person that i've come to love,
and i thank you for that

but when i was at my highest,
i left you
because pride had taken over me,
and i thought i didn't need you

we're both at fault though,
because you've hurt me as much as i've hurt you
i love you and miss you everyday still but i do believe that
i'm doing better without you
