A Friend Of A Friend - Poem by Isaac Spradlin

We met by introduction
No need for second glances
Our lives full of second chances

A friend of a friend
We will be together 'til the end
Our thoughts are aligned
Yet she don't know
That I want her to be mine

A friend of a friend
Can be more than a friend
I want to be together
But I think she'd rather be friends
Should I bring it up or just give up

My life is filled with problems like this
These are the problems that I would love to miss
The ones that leave you wondering what if
I think I might take a chance
and even if not at first glance
I think I can make her see
She will think it's just a joke
Because of jokes we've made before

I'm getting weary now
My knees begin to quake
Second thoughts start to arrive
But then I start to speak
She hears my voice start to squeak
She probably sees me as a geek
but then again I think what if
So I ask the fatal question
She looks surprised, pauses
but then the look in her eyes brightens
Now I'm not so frightened
as I pause to here her answer

Then she says what took so long
I begin to laugh and so did she
She says yes while we look at each other

A friend of a friend
Is now more than a friend
We may be together 'til the end
I don't have what ifs
My life changed because of this
Friend of a friend
