Just Friends Poem

I fell in love with my best friend, and when I told him how I felt, he told me I wasn't ready for him and urged me to go out with other guys. When I went out, I realized that my heart wouldn't allow me to, but it was already too late. I hurt him because he didn't expect me to give up on him that easily. But I want to fight for him, and that is what I have been doing.

Is It To Late Or Is There Still Time?

Published by Family Friend Poems December 2008 with permission of the author.

If he is ready to date
I have no chance
I would already be too late
For there to be romance

She will complete his loneliness
And I will just be alone
She will be getting his kiss
And I'll be unknown

I can try to win his heart
But do I have a chance
I have to play this smart
And give this love a glance

He is worth the fight
He is worth so much more
I want to make this right
But will I see the door?

As I look around and see
The pain I feel inside
I wish he would want me
To be by his side

But instead I hurt him so
And I want to make it right
I wish that he would know
He is all I think about at night

Does he think of me?
Does he feel the same?
Or is it what I see...
Is it all just a game?

So why does he do this ?
Why does he fight what is there?
Is it because he is pissed
And not thinking clear?

Or is it possible to see
That I am nothing for real?
When he looks at me
How does he really feel?

I will never know this
Because he keeps it inside
See, all this I'll miss
If I just step on by

To read his mind one day
Would be all I need
Then there would be no game
I would just see

Does he want me to go
Walk away or at least try?
Or does he want to know
I won't give up this time?

To find a special someone
And see them walk away
Hurts the heart a ton
Like mine does every day

I have no chance to be
The special girl in his eyes
I messed this up, you see
So all I here is goodbye

How do I walk away
From what I know could be?
What else can I say
To make him really see?

How do I get the chance
If he is looking elsewhere?
How do I get a glance
If his head is somewhere?

I know I could make this better
I could make this right
If he would just give me a chance
If he could see the light

The fact is he won't
I am wasting my time
He will never want
My love or my mind

So I walk away in tears
I don't look back at all
With all of the fears
I know what I saw

I know what I had
And I lost it so
I did something bad
And forgiving me is a no

So that is all
I hope he knew
I'll be waiting for a call
Saying I need you

I know how it feels. Your poem made me cry. Thank you. I am trying to rekindle a flame with my wife. We have been together for 13 years and have 5 beautiful, smart kids. I love to write; it is my passion. She helped me when I hit rock bottom. I almost committed suicide, but because of her I am here today learning from other people's pain to show her I still love her and there is no other to compare her.
