    We were neighborhood jewels
    That's right we were tight
    Hair done
    Nails done
    Clothes fitting right
    We looked like twins
    So we would pass as sisters all the time
    You had a big mouth
    And I had mine
    You were always down for whatever
    It didn't matter it was all good
    Remember when we walked to the park
    Barefoot in the summer time
    Our feet were so burnt
    I could hardly stand on mine.
    We'd tear up the mall
    I mean rip it out the frame
    While brotha's tried to hollar
    Some were ok, but most were lame
    You got pregnant but you didn't tell me
    Until you felt the time was right
    But by then you'd lost the baby
    And we both shared a good cry
    Remember when my boyfriend cheated
    You knew and you told me
    We called him cussed him out
    Then you talked me into dating his homie :)
    I set you up with his ugly cousin
    Just so i could get to see him more
    D*** life was good back then
    But it wasn't worth dieing for
    You'll never know how much i miss you
    Every hour and every day
    I drive by your house often
    There's so much I want to say
    And every time someone sees the picture
    Of you in the blackmini skirt
    They think it's me and I have to hold back tears
    As I try to explain who you were
    You were my buddy
    Not a best friend but something better
    We had a connection like siblings
    Like we were meant to be born together
    Seven years has passed and I'm still trying
    To get over the hurt and the pain
    You were a true to life angel looking like Faith Evans
    I know I'll see you again.

    Dedicated to: Michelle
