The poem tells the story.

 


Now I have a very good friend


He’s my brother but not my kin


Our link is hard to comprehend


We’re friends through thick and thin


 


How to express these emotions?


We men find it hard to vocalize


It goes against macho notions


Bet that’s not a real big surprise


 


The term love is not expressed


Often feelings are left unstated


Other cultures their not repressed


But in ours it’s not advocated


 


To hug a man who’s unrelated


Too often in America is taboo


So feelings are left unarticulated


We find other ways to make-do


 


So we shake hands and high five


We laugh, joke and share a drink


Closeness from these we derive


But something’s missing, I think


 


Close friends we unexpectedly lose


Especially later when we get old


Then it’s too late the words to use,


So for now “Consider yourself told".

Hey! I love you! How's that? Okay? Naw, I don't know you so how could I love you except in the most general, "love humanity" way. But I DO love you poem. So there.
