About the Poem
This poem was written about a close friend. We got really close and I wanted to go one step further. At this thought she quickly said the infamous line "We should just be friends" This is for all of you who have heard that line a bit too much

|What was, can be no more.
What could have been is now impossible.
The things I have waited for, for what seems like an eternity,
These things are now but a faded dream in the night.
Emotions that were strong and confusing, recently depleted,
Are now brought to the light again.
Feelings that were thought hidden
Are now in my face screaming to me--why?
All that my world was, has now come to a foreseen, yet unexpected end.
The things that I held dear and secretive to me
Have now become an uncovered shadow,
Forever I will hold dear to me, your memory and constant voice in my head
All you are and all you have given me--
I will hold close to my heart and guard these memories
With my life, for that's all I have of you now.
Because you said,
Forever, my friend .
