What's Your Answer?

You...you are a friend that many pray to have in their life,
Which is why I'm writing about you cause I appreciate the fact you are in my life.
Years of pain and years of success kept us in contact,
From opportunities to disasters our true friendship has yet to lack.

We watched each other grow from kids to being almost grown,
Moving on to better ways in life by letting our actions be shown.
All these years and I haven't said much of what's really on my mind,
I kept this a secret but even you yourself is not blind. 

I adore you...I simply have been hiding my emotions in my blackest nights,
Whenever I see you there's a chill in my chest and every time I choose not to act my
conscience literally bites.
I can't fully explain the way my heart skips when I get around you,
And it may just be foolish of me to consider you may have ever felt that way too. 

I can't stand next to a doctor and say I have saved more lives,
Nor can I stand next to a lawyer and say even I have knowledge of how to justify.
Money isn't just piling under my roof and there isn't a Swiss account connected to my card,
But the spirit of myself can tackle all this on the longest yard.

I know with everything within me I can make you happy just by being myself,
Cause there is more to the concept of me than just of what's below my belt.
My point is you're going away and I can't think of any logical reason for you to stay,
Now I'm laughing cause I can imagine you might not have any words to say...?
