You did not know ,and still do not,
How much I have always loved you.
Yet we spent so much time together,
Sharing so many sorrows and joys.
Whenever you brushed against me in the gym,
I always felt strangely stirred.
Perhaps I should have known even then
That my course would not be yours.
You always played a straight bat
And confided totally in me.
In that we were soulmates,
Though one secret I did hold back.
I was always your willing listener,
Your voice shooting shivers of ecstasy through me.
But I found it too painful
To let you know how I really felt.
When you met Jenny,my world dissolved.
How I had hoped you would reciprocate my love.
But, to you ,we were just best friends and real good mates.
My true feelings you do not even now suspect.
