hello shannbodan:))) i really love this poem:) i can hear your inner feelings through this poem. you are hopping that the girl that you like which is your best friend,would break her rule of just staying as best friends and instead cross the boundry and start off as a couple with you:)))

To My Best Friend?

This is for the greatest person
that I have ever known.
Being away from you for so long
I am feeling so alone.
With you I am so happy
you keep my heart content.
But I had to be a volunteer -
so off to England I went.
That is where I found my heart
and how I feel for you.
I try so hard to deny this feeling
and I don't know what to do.
I said that I would never again
let someone take my heart.
And here I'm sitting wanting you
and hate that we're apart.
Everyday you are in my thoughts,
every night you're in my dreams.
I can't believe what's happening,
is this really what it seems?
I know you're only wanting
to be the best of friends,
but I am asking you sincerely
if it's your rule you'll bend.
To take a chance to know me
to let me share it all.
And maybe one day very soon
for me one day you'll fall.
Our friendship we now have
is something that I'd miss
but maybe once we let go
we will find eternal bliss.

sarah
fantastic poem, this happened 2 me when i was younger, she fell 4 me and i rejected it later 2 fall 4 her but it was 2 late. the love and lust was so strong but it was just 2 complicated. weve both moved on with our lives now and dont speak and circumstances would be 2 difficult to ever be with her again but i will never forget how much i loved her and most probably she will feel the same because i know how strong our love was towards the end. anyway enough of me rabbiting on great poem!

When the first time i have read this poem, I was hit, I remember my bestfriend that I love most, but it's only a dream for I know that my love is forbidden because my bestfriend has now in other relationship. I love this poem so much, I love to read this repeatedly. Like it.
Sarah
Woow, That was a really good discription about me and my best friend. Yet I didn't had to go to England to realise I feel more for him than just best friends. We gave indirect signs to each other, and after a while we talked about it. Now we're in between friendship and love, and I have to tell you that's a lot more difficult. :)
