Dead Friends

His words were never said to me

His words were only read by me

I should have known

But was never told

Too late because he’s dead to me


If it happens again, I’ll have to see

About you claiming you’re a friend indeed

Cause you swore you’d be a friend in need

You lied

You were never a friend to me
