I can't imagine life without you
So long I've been under your spell
So many moments that we've been through
So many ways I know you well

And still I know you as a friend
I watched you in his love embrace
I cried with you at bitter end
I wiped the teardrops off your face

I've warred within my heart just thinking
Whether or not, your lips, I'd kiss
I‘ve felt my heart within me sinking
As I recalled, the chances missed

I fear that years of friendship lasting
Forbid us from becoming more
But when your loving heart comes casting
I know the role to audition for

Boy have I been in this position before.  You expressed it perfectly!  To risk a friendship for the chance of love...or miss out on the chance of love and settle for mere friendship?  Tough decision.  Great work!

Kevin,
One thing I have learned in life...
take it while you can. You never know when you're
going to get another chance. Follow your heart!  
Well expressed!

Kevin, another great one. Your style has an unusual read to me that always seems fresh.
Bring back that one about going into the black or something, it was the first one I read it was way cool.

Where do I start?

when i finished writing this thing, and reading it over for the 100th time, i was so happy with it, i think thats the first time thats ever happened, everything i wanted to say found its way out of me and onto the paper

Im so happy that you guys could identify with it and take it in as your own, thankyou for such kind replies, they really help right now, a million thank you's and a smiley face

Hi Kevin
Beautiful poem!
And beautiful poems!
I was reading some of your other poems
And I really liked……In love with one who loves another
                                ……Stage Right
                                 ……My turn
And my favorites     ……Self Adressed
                        And      …...*What is life but little things

See ya at the top!

Kevin this is my favorite of any of yours I have read.   She's lucky to have a devoted friend like you that cares for her...and who knows maybe someday you will share much more.  James
