She Is A Different Person Now

I was 7 years old when I first met her. She is the daughter of my mom's best friend, and she was a year younger than me. I saw her a lot back then, and she soon became my best friend. We were partners in crime, It was me and her against the world. I don't really know when, but I started developing feelings for her one day. I'm am and have always been shy, so I didn't really know what to do about the feelings. I'm not sure, but I think she knew I liked her. A couple more years and liked turned into love. We didn't lived close to each other, so I would see her every other weekend. When I was 13, her mom got remarried. When her mom got remarried, her family moved to another state.
She didn't like her new step-dad and step-brothers. I talked to her over the phone all the time to try to be there for her, but one day we just stopped calling each other. I didn't talk to or see her for 2 years. Over those 2 years, my mom had been telling me that she was not the same person. She has been acting out and always getting into trouble. I didn't really know how to snap her out of it.

I'm 16 now and her family just recently moved back. She is a totally different person now. She is stealing her mom's car and having sex with guys she barely even knows. When my mom told me all of this, my heart broke. I feel like the girl I fell in love with is gone forever. My mom won't even let me talk to her anymore because she thinks the girl is a bad influence. All I have left of the former her are the memories of me and her over the years. I just wish I told her how felt about her before it was to late.
