About the Poem
Sometimes, we try too hard to encourage a relationship that shouldn't be encouraged, only to lose what little there was to begin with.

I Knew You Well
I knew your dreams
Because we used to talk
For hours at a time.
I knew your friendship
Because you were always there
When I needed your comfort.
I knew your pain
Because you trusted me enough
To share your past with me.
I knew your fears
Because you helped me
To see that mine were the same.
I knew what was important to you
Because you were always
So honest with me.
I knew your goals
Because I felt the enthusiasm
In your words when you talked of them.
I knew your guidance
Because you patiently explained
The things I didn't understand.
I knew your heart
Because I saw right into it
And felt it a part of my own.
I knew your honor
Because you let me go
When I fell in love with you.
And I knew your love
Because you wouldn't let me dream
of us together.
