What now old friend

I am so sorry but what was I to do?
I fell so bad that I am happy she hurt you.
The thing is though that I loved her first.
Each time she turns away it makes my heart burst.
She was happy with you at the time though.
That is why I thought it best I go.
Now I see the rejection hurting you.
I don't know though what it is I should do.
Should I help you when her back and condemn my heart to unholy places.
Should I go to her and leave you to these faces.
I don't know, I don't know.
What do you do with a heart that refuses to grow.
I dont want my actions to drive you away.
I realy dont know though what I should say. 
I still love her I really do.
At the same time though i see that so do you. 
So old friend what do we do now.
Which of us will be the one to go out with a final bow.

    It seems like she's caused a lot of pain for both of you, Josh. In your heart you probably know what the right thing to do is, but remember that good friends are hard to find. Wishing you the best in reaching a decision, Carolyn
