My heart ached for him.
For his heart was broken by one.
One who was supposed to love him,
But had abandoned him in time of need.
Rumours were all she had.
And maybe a bit of truth he told her.
She listened to all the wrong things,
But turned dead ears to his words of love.
Her betrayal had made him a shell of a man.
Yet not one word he said against her.
He held onto her memories,
In hope that she will return one day.
Her moving on seemed natural.
Possibly she might have never loved him.
But I couldn't be a spectator,
to his destruction.
For I had taken a vow.
To protect him and to support him.
As long as I am alive,
No-one will drag him down.
It's time for you to let go my friend.
Move on. Be happy.
And whatever decision you take,
Always know I'll be there for you.
-Your best friend
After all, friendship is for life.
