Like the changes in the tide I am with you all the way,
But now feel isolated and helpless as I drift along each day.
On my roller coaster of emotions, that hopefully time will erode,
As you hold my heart as a hand grenade, just waiting to explode.
Reflecting alone, on your past words, often starts me crying,
Spoken and written "just for me", should I really keep on trying?
I am struggling to find a solution that will keep you by my side,
For I know that love will die in me without my beautiful bride.
Then when I think of the warmth of your smile,
I feel your love, your affection, and your caring style.
How have I survived this long without a friend such as you?
You really do make my life complete and so much brighter too.
Now that you have put my love on hold, I don't know what to do.
I don't like running hot and cold, knowing what I feel for you.
I dream of us walking on the beach, talking and holding hands.
Knowing we're always in reach, no talk of "buts" and "ands".
I'm now afraid of being involved, and causing you greater pain.
Should I get this thing resolved? Perhaps, now I'm weeping again.
I tried to express my love to you, but instead should I say goodbye?
Then we would know at last, letting us be happy, or maybe cry.
I love the way you know me, like no one else, that's true ,
And when my worries get me down, I have someone to turn to.
The way you can see my soul, and look behind my eyes
I don't have to hide my feelings, or put on my disguise.
I really don't understand what happened, or why you turned away.
I guess I will never know, but I have a few things that I need to say.
To me it seemed we could go forever, our hearts beating the same.
So much we shared, so much we cared, our love an eternal flame.
My head now knows what to do, but my heart is beating so fast.
Using only feelings to guide me, I hope nice guys don't finish last.
But if you do release my heart, breaking it, if I were replaced.
I don't know how I would ever recover and bear to see your face.
With you I learned to love, and as I person I have grown
No one could have told me, how could I have ever known.
That you would come in to my life, and my life would start to bloom
And like a brand new butterfly, coming out of my cocoon.
So as I try and be a friend for you, giving you the space you need,
Bear with me as I adjust, ignoring past words from you I read.
Overall your friendship is important, and I never want that to end.
So, if you need me to be there for you, you will always find in me...
Your very best friend.
