About the Poem

This poem was written for a friend whom I've known for 12 years. After all those years, we got together one day. We sat and talked, we looked at each other and a spark grew between us. The next thing you know we were kissing, and the feelings we had for each other all those years finally came out. We both discovered that we had the same feelings for each other all those years but we kept them to ourselves, never hinting to the other how much we really cared and wanted each other so much. It was like something out of a romance novel. But let me tell you, it was the most beautiful day of our lives.

A Few Visitor Comments

Dear Joe Vieira, your poem "From Friends to Lovers" met a lot to me and my High School flame Carol, who after 50 years got in touch with each other. WE are seriously in love and will be together full time very soon. It was love at first sight AGAIN. She sent me your poem, and I found it to match our situation exactly. Your poem is beautifully written, and I vote it to be #1 David Reno

From Friends To Lovers

Sometimes I feel sad and sometimes I feel blue
but whenever I see you, I'm as happy as can be
for you bring a smile upon my face
and a feeling of joy within my heart
you're like my sunshine in the morning
and my stars that glow at night
you're like the waves in the ocean
the cool breeze in the wind
like the call of the birds in the morning dew
like the sounds of beauty in the night
you see all of these things are of beauty and love
that's how I feel whenever you are near
for it was the passion and desire from both of us
that opened up the world for our eyes to see
for our love of each other will grow and grow
and our needs and desires will be more everyday
for a friend you once were and will always be
has turned into love as it should have been
so I want you to know as a friend and lover
that in my heart and arms you'll always stay
for our love for each other will never fade.

I love this poem & can relate to Joe's words within. This is what happened to me and my boyfriend he was still is my best friend but after 4 & 1/2 yrs of being friends he told me he loved me and it was a great relief because now i knew i didnt have to hold my feelings in anymore and told him i loved him to & that was for us to was not only the most beautiful day but happiest days of our lives & it's worked out for the best for us & here we are still, having celebrated our 1st couples anniversary back in August 06. For me this was a dream come true this is all I ever wanted & unexpectedly found so much more & for both of us we have found everything that we've been looking for in each other & with that a renewed faith in love.
