About the Poem

This is a poem about the beauty of friendship... about eventually falling in love, in more than one way, with your best friend. It is about realizing that one person knows you better than anyone one else, and you love and cherish that aspect of your relationship.

Very touching. makes a person take time to think about what's really important.
How touching!
WOW! That is excatly how i feel when I am around Matt, my best friend whom I have fallen in love with, those excat words seem to rumble in my mind. It is so strange to fall in love with your best friend and it is so complicated.
This peom helped me be able to express how much my best-friend means to me

One Last Time

If I ever needed it
or if it was ever wanted,
I would get it from you
and I could ask this of you...
forever and ever, because I know it's always there -
and I know you're always there.

So if I cry and ask you to never leave...
just say "ok" please.
And I'm thinking that I never had to tell you that -
because you know,
don't you?
You've known every time.
So someday we'll dance
and I know the whole world will want to cut in,
but you won't let them...
and I can't let them -
because I think I might need to hold on to you forever...
one last time.
