Friends Not Lovers (Dedicated to PB)


You came into my life when I needed you most
I had almost faded away, becoming a ghost
A ghost of the man that I once used to be
Then your friendship came and helped rescue me

Mow I'm a happy man once again
Tears, a remnant of way back when
You're not my lover, only my friend
Still, with you my life I want to spend

I couldn't help myself, I fell in love with you
Confessing my feelings, the right thing to do
You said you loved me, but only as a friend
So friends we will be right up to the end

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
