And when it all came tumbling down
What did you wish for? Whose hand did you seek?
Beneath those crumbling walls nobody, but one heard your suffering weeps
She was there for you, she took you and your troubles in
She helped you regain your strength, your confidence; helped you build yourself again
And yet you walked away when it was her
turn to be down
Breaking the oath you took as a best friend to
be there for eternity
You forgot all that she had done for you, all that she helped you get around
Yet, she still forgave you because she vowed to love unconditionally
Only some are as strong as her and willing to
forgive and forget
Only a few will smile, even though bruised, and continue their walk forward
Someday you will realize her loyalty, her stubbornness to not forfeit
Someday you will thank her for making you much more than a coward.

About the Author
Writing has been my passion since the age of 7… my inspiration to keep going with my writing has always come from my mother. Even though she passed away when I was 18, it is now driven by her memory.
My name is Amanda Hoppes born and raised in Waterloo, Iowa. My writing is my every step, every move, every breath I take; It’s my vibrant smile, my saddest frown, my every single mistake; It’s my heart on fire, my soul so deep, my mind always free; It’s my life line, my past, present and future, my writing is ME.
