Beginning To End

Our friendship and love, a past-present-future blend.
He was there from the start, and will be to end.
My heart speaks volumes and some I wrote.
But those I sent him now drift afloat.

The spanning water that was in part
responsible for my broken heart.
Things once broken can be mended; 
it didn’t even need be tended.

Once he thought I was offended, 
worried that our friendship ended.
Once he thought I had pretended, 
didn’t know what I’d intended.

Feelings strong for him of mine, 
I waited for the stars’ align.
They shined down and things were clear
and I had everything that I held dear.

Such happiness exchanged through words.
Such joy echoed, like song of birds.
Inwardly of course I sang 
when realized that we would hang.

The first time ever I came to see 
in which really mattered to me.
It was not that I couldn’t be 
with the one who I gave love’s decree.

What mattered most was that he was safe, 
more than happily would I strafe.
To the side to allow another 
that would not take the place as his lover.

How easily the words do flow, 
the other day the clouds did snow.
Imagined did I not what first, 
I thought for what it was I thirst.

Instead I saw for what it was, 
Nature’s rarity, I gave applause.
So short a show but one worth seeing.
It never settled, oh so fleeting.

I realized then that life’s the same; 
we have no time to place the blame.
But who are we to try and say 
that one should be another way?

But now I realize I digress, 
although for why I only guess.
Now maybe back on track, I’ll find 
those reasons buried in my mind.

Such feelings I left locked inside 
and then I realized, to myself I had lied.
From this moment something clicked, 
an epiphany that did not conflict.

From now on I’d hold nothing back, 
(I think this here is back on track).
Since I swore to myself and him, 
not even once have us drift apart or look grim.

Happy now, so I can’t see 
why I ever tried to be 
more than what I am.

The glow I feel, 
Inner warmth, 
Happiness so strong.
To know I can be there for him, 
to know where I belong.

I owe him thanks he won’t admit, 
I hope he knows I’ll never quit. 
Forever I will stand at his side, 
someone in which he can confide.

He was there from the start and will be to end.
A friendship and love for which, I’d forever die to defend…
