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.
