I Love You, My Friend
|by Lynn Smiley
Shall I run or hide
And die inside
That I never knew you, even as a friend?
Can I go back in time,
Before your hand was in mine,
Or erase the kiss,
That I will forever miss,
Or forget your eyes
That seem to hypnotize?
Can my mind erase
The feel of your embrace?
How can I forget all of this
And pretend it doesn't exist?
I want you to know one thing that will never end -
my love for you. I love you, my friend
