There’s nobody else I’d rather trust,
My secrets are safe with you;
Not once have you let me down.
But now you’re in a corner collecting dust,
And I know it isn’t fair to you,
Shutting you out, not keeping you around.
I’d tell you things no one knew,
You were forever patient with me.
You’d hear me out, not making a sound,
About all the times I felt blue,
Happier moments that I shared excitedly,
And every miserable bit of my meltdown.
I hate that we don’t talk like we used to,
But I also know nothing will ever change.
You’ll welcome me with a loving embrace
When I come running back to you—
Our bond is so special, so strange,
Running its own course, on its own pace.
You’re dearly missed, but this I know,
I’ll see you again very soon.
We can talk all night like we did before;
Now I wonder ‘Where did those times go?’
I haven’t seen you now in many a moon.
Dear Diary, I look forward to seeing you once more.
