Losing a Friend

When you lose a friend, it's like dropping that five scoop ice cream cone your parents bought you for your A+ book report. It's like breaking the wing off your new model airplane you bought with the money you made moving Ms. Smith's yard. It's like your sister ripping and painting your favorite shirts. It's like reaching for the last piece of pie when your sister gets it first and eats it in front of your face. It hurts to lose a friend because it's a person fading out of your life.
