About the Poem

I wrote this on a night I was feeling sorry for myself. My best friend in this world is a married man who I love dearly. I respect his situation but will always wonder what it would be like to have just one day in his wife's shoes. She doesn't realize how lucky she is. Before you are quick to judge, I am not looking to break up a marriage. I only want to express the feelings I have locked inside.

Hi Christelle, You have very nice and sweet poem that express people feeling who experience the same thing. Keep your good work an for sure will waiting for your poem in the future. The only thing different between me with others that I fall in love with a guy who attached with his girlfriend for 3 years already. I just realize my feeling toward him 7 months ago and till today I become his best friend. Although its hurt and pain, I can't leave him. I'm the only best friend he had to share everything. If by stand beide him can amke him happy then I'll do it although I need to neglect my own hapiness. All the best for all of you who fall in love with other people who attached already. God Bless You Always

Three Wishes

If I had three wishes,
I would wish to trade lives,
With a person so lucky,
A woman,
Your wife.

Just to have one day of waking up beside you,
Looking into those beautiful eyes,
Tasting your morning lips.
To make slow love to you
'Til we collapse into each other's arms.
I want to watch you shower and
Help with the hard to reach areas (wink).
I will make your breakfast and
Send you to work with a kiss and a smile.
I would love nothing more than to be that person
You come home to after work,
To greet with a hug.
We can talk over dinner . . .
Enjoy dessert much much later (smile).
I want nothing more than to appreciate
The beautiful, kind, caring, gentle, honest,
loyal and loving man you are.

I would love the chance
To show you what you deserve and
Enjoy what she has.
If I had three wishes . . .
I would give away two, because
The only thing I want in this world,
Is one chance with you!

YOUR POEM IS REALLY GOOOOOOOD!
Valerie
The words seem to come from a very real and true space.
Maria
This is so hard to deal with when you fall for your best friend. I am just becoming best friends with a friend I stopped talking for personnel reasons. But now it has been we are reconnecting and he is married and I am so sad. Happy but sad. Praying for his happiness but wishing like Christelle to be the wife.
kiting
This is a very heartfelt poem. It made me fall tears from my eyes. It's being in love with someone whom you know that you can't demand anything from him and can't show him how much you love him and how special he is. I think I'm in this kind of situation right now and it's really hard. After I read the comments,it's a relief because now I know that I'm not the only one suffering from this kind of dilemma and it's normal. Its really hard.
Lou
This didn't touch me it knocked me OVER. This person has great gifts - keep writing!

Rose
Excellent. The perfect words to describe a feeling!
Lisa
Awsome poem. I can relate to this. I fell in love with a married man. I had him for a year and he always went home to his wife. unfortunately this married man is the love of my life but. he still has his wife.
April
this poem is really good. i think that is how me and my boyfriend started going out. he was with this girl and i would do anyhthing to be with him. and i done just about all of them things to him when we first got together. i love this poem and you are a really good writer.
Vicky
I'm having an affair with a married man and like the author have no desire to split him up from his wife (who is lovely). The poem struck a chord with me. It's exactly how I feel, wanting to wake up with him and for him to come home to me, not her. Its good to know, and a comfort, that I am not the only one who feels this way! Thanks, V x
Carolyn
This hit home as my best friend and I are both married and yet even after 20+ yrs its hard. We not only love each other but have loved each other in every sense and his new wife loves money more than him. I will be giving him a look at this it says what we have said to each other it's beautiful.
Sheri
Whoa! I'm still shivering! I got goose bumps reading this. I am in the same situation as you. I spend many a moment making the same wish and wondering how much longer I can maintain the balancing act. just being a best friend and hoping, wishing and praying for so much more.
Tanveer
I really loved this poem. I have no words to praise you. The first time I read the poem I thought I would send it to my friend whom I really love at an appropriate time and was upset when I lost it but today I found it and am happy to send it to him. Hope he reads and gets my feelings correct.
Heather
this poem is one i personally could relate to and enjoyed reading very much
D
This poem hit me where it counts, I am in the same situation and this poem says everything. I wish I could give it to my friend but some things are better left alone. His wife treats him so bad and she doesn't know what she has.
lisa
I so love this poem. it says everything i feel for a friend. and its sad too say that how I really feel.
Rosanna
I can not believe I just read that. It's like I wrote it myself. I am amazed. You opened up my heart and wrote down what you saw. You saw a girl in love with her best friend. GA maybe someday!
Daniele
Christell S. , Your poem is a beautiful one. Don't worry about being judged. Your deepest secrets are ones that many hold dear to their hearts. I am one going through the same situation, and there is absolutly nothing wrong with the feeling you posses.
KIM
I LOVED YOUR POEM. I'M INVOLVED WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS A GIRL FRIEND BUT THEY'VE BEEN TOGETHER LONG ENOUGH TO BE MARRIED BUT THIS IS JUST HOW I FEEL. IT'S LIKE I WAS READING SOMETHING THAT I JUST TOLD MY BEST FRIEND! THIS POEM IS 100% IF I WERE TO HAVE A SCALE FROM 1-100

I love your poem I can say that my wish in a way came true. I did have him for two years not totally but he did come to see me every day. But when his wife found out he choose her over me. I learned a hard lesson in all this that in the long run it is not worth it. It hurts too much too let go.
