I Love You

Dear friend, I love you
But I am only free to say so
As you are gone forever
And I am married
So finally
I say
I love you

I should have told you
But held my council
And then things where never in the right places
To say
And I could not
For fear of rejection
For fear of friendship lost

I should have told you
That first day
I should have screamed it
To the clouds
Then you would have laughed
And kindly turned me down
And our class would have laughed with scorn
And I would have drifted away free
And friendship would have been awkward
Then severed
And I would not be here
With a breaking heart
I wouldn’t be feeling this pain

Wouldn’t have to tell my husband
The way I feel
As he holds me close and treats me gently
I love him more
But was that only circumstance?

Either way I can say it now

I love you
