Is it too naive to expect That relationships will last? That people will stay And not become past. Is it too stupid to assume That friends will always matter? That whatever happens The friendship will keep getting better. Every relationship grows Into a beautiful thing; Until it gets ruined by expectations And the search for meaning. Every friendship vows To last a lifetime Until life gets in the way And spoils all rhythm and rhyme. The start of every relationship Makes you feel immensely special The bond is just growing strong And everything just falls into a pattern. But as the good times pass I often fear, the worst might happen That people will leave And I will be left alone; forgotten. Hence all I ask is for us To stay in touch. The friendship should last I don’t ask for much.
