"When life gives you lemons, bite into it and embrace the bitter taste of reality." (My own words)

I found you in the forest,
With a kind and gentle friend.
You were holding onto a branch,
That you tried to bend.

I showed you to my town,
Which I knew that you would like.
I wanted you to see a crown
With a very pointy spike.

We wre together until you left,
And it was very day.
But than you came back again,
Because I was being bad.

You taught me how it should be.
And I knew at last,
That you were aa gentle friend,
From the past

I like it. It has a strong menaing. If I can make a suggestion , it could have been a bit more descriptive with feelings. When I read it I did not feel anything. I did not feel happy, love, or sad. I'm sure your friend appreciates it. Great work, keep it up!
