This poem was written by a close friend of mine who wanted to express their feelings and done it in this poem. They sent it to me to read and asked me to tell them what i thought about it.

They didn't want anyone else to see it because they might have been scared of what they'll say, but I talked them into letting me post it here on Planet Garth because i know all you guys here will say nice things about it. Hope you guys like it......

"Just A Friend"
Unannounced Author

My "sweet cheeks", my "hunny bunny", my "Romeo"...
to anyone who asks and wants to know,
I tell them that to me he is "just a friend"
If I could convince myself, this ache might end.

When I see others with what I want for myself,
I force a smile and put my feelings back on the shelf.
Every time his heart breaks because she did him wrong,
mine breaks too, but for him I have to be strong.

They all promise him the moon and stars,
when all he really wants from them is their heart.
More than "just a friend" is what I try to be,
when the next one leaves him hurt and lonely.

So I "lend him my ear" and a shoulder to lean on,
when the love she once gave him now is all gone.
Just to see him smile again ---
I rejoice in being "just a friend"

As I think about our relationship
I'm grateful for what I DO have with him.
I want him to realize that I'm not "just a friend"
but someone he can trust, thru thick and thin.

We share a bond that you cannot see
'til the end --- friends faithfully.
All I want for him to be...
is glad he has "just a friend" like me.

Whether life's sky turns gray or blue...
if he is happy, then I am too.
Support through it all right til the end,
is what it means to me to be "just a friend".

just tell me what ya all think and i'll pass your comments on to them.....

It's nice,Jesse.

I know how it feels when you are a close friend but you just can be a friend. I've been in this way once in my life and it's too hard.

This poems reminds me three songs I love from Paul Brandt "That's hurts" , from John Michael Montgomery "Friends" and from Alejandro Sanz "Amiga mia" ( altough I think you don't know who is the latest one).

Tell your friend that's a beautiful poem and the feelings around are so sweet.

Marga my love, I will tell them the kind words that you, Annette, and Brian have said and i'm sure they'll appreciate it. :)

I know how they feel too, i've been there, done that, many times and always kicked myself for it. But i'm thankful that i'm where i'm at now. :D
