Can Friends Be More And Stay Friends

Three pairs of feet kicking through the sand,
Three blithe forms walking hand in hand.
Three wide smiles stretching from ear to ear,
Three mirthful voices that all around can hear.

But can friends be more, and stay friends?

Waves lapping bodies as they swim in the blue,
Friendship reverberating genuine and true.
Sitting in the twilight and the colors of the sun,
Two look at each other thinking 'They could be the one.'

But can friends be more, and stay friends?

She decides to take the moment and give a little peck,
He however freezes and then runs back to the deck.
Crushed and hurt and broken she begins to cry,
While he stands alone and shaken, scarlet red and shy.

But can friends be more, and stay friends?

'Why, oh why? ' he ponders as he starts to feel queasy,
'What am I afraid of that makes me so uneasy? '
The thing indeed that made him stop the girl from going further,
Was the fear that it may one day end and he would surely hurt her.

But can friends be more, and stay friends?

'I don't want to lose her, ' thought the boy who stomped and cussed,
'And time might weaken passion and the closer bonds between us.'
And so he went, reassured that he could make things right,
Went to the girl he faced and embraced her long and tight.

But can friends be more, and stay friends?

He spoke to her and told her that he knew from recent past,
That they were still to young and would not be able to last.
He told that she was right for him in every single way,
But time was key in what she wanted or else they would pay.

But can friends be more, and stay friends?

And finally he said that he knew she wouldn't understand,
But he wants to make things happen, but only while they can.
'So please, oh please just wait because we don't need things to end,
And I believe along with time that we can be more, AND friends.'
