This poem really got to me. It explains everything that I am going through with a friend that I just realized I love. Its hard to tell him but I think with this poem he will see how much he means...Great Job :)

I was kind of looking for a poem to tell a friend that I fell in love with (emotionally and physically) in high school but over the years it died away simply because we lost communication. Well, we've gotten back in touch with one another and I've come to realize that I still love him, regardless of how upset or even angry he made me in the past, present, and will in the future. We're both young adults now and have learned how to love and respect others more deeply. I revealed my past love for him and that I kept these feelings to myself but I don't know how to tell him that I love him again and probably will for a while because I don't want to lose him again and have revealing my feelings be the reason. I would rather keep them to myself again than tell him. I will probably write my own poem but this will give me some inspiration. Thank you.
