Can We Still Be Friends?

I was cold and hurting
lost out in the night
wandering and searching
for heaven's light

I saw the night sky clearing
when you spread your rainbow wings
But little did I know
what joy you would bring

From that moment on
a friendship did start
you kissed away my tears
and sheltered my heart

I bless the day God
sent him from above
But then I grew fearful
for I had fallen in love

I told you this feeling
and what did you say?
You said you liked our friendship
and that's how it would stay

I cried for a friendship I thought I lost
But then felt your warm, gentle hand
You then whispered in my ear
that by my side you'll forever stand

I loved this poem it reminded me of my life and also from when I fell in love. But not only that, the way your poem ended was true for me and some guy but later after 2 months he realized that he had made a mistake and went back with me! so everything turn out well and now I think that he's going to propose to me even though we're only 16! So anyway i would vote your poem: 15/10 so thats like 150% out of 100%!
