I still call you friend, sorry



I can't believe I let you slip.
I thought I was holding on for dear life,
but I guess my fingers were too numb to notice.
I can't believe I let you go.
I thought you were coming my way,
but I guess I didn't notice you already passed me.
I can't believe I didn't say goodbye.
I thought it'd be better to just keep saying hello,
but then my lips couldn't even move in your presence.
I can't believe I ran away.
I thought you would run after me,
but I wouldn't run after me. 
I can believe what you did.
I thought I would be sad about what I did to you,
but I felt worse because of what I didn't do for you.
