It's been almost 8 years since the day we've known each other,
but it's still fresh on my mind.
The moment I saw you, I already knew that we would be like good friends
and I was right.
I first felt the little thing called love on you.
Some said He was my first, but deep inside I knew it was not him but instead it was You.
My feeling for you started when we treated each other as best friends.
And yes, I find myself jealous every time you talked to me about your feelings for her,
but I hid my feelings because I know it would only ruin our friendship.
So, I just let my eyes close even if it was obviously hurting me
Every time I utter her name in front of you.
Days passed, I stopped expecting that someday you'll love me more than a best friend.
'Til one day, I was on my room,
my brother received a text message but he's not around
So I went up and read it.
It was from You, I saw your name on the inbox and read carefully your message.
I was shocked! I can't believe it.
My heart smiled as though it did not smile before.
It was the day that I knew that you loved me too.
It was memorable for me.
From that day, I felt your love.
Every time you went into our house,
we spent time together and would even say the magical words.
'Til one day, when I woke up, my feelings changed.
I started hating you and I don't know why.
I didn't talked to you and I always ignore your ideas.
I knew, you've been hurt by my words
And it was another girl who fixed your heart.
I saw how she made you felt better.
And I unexpectedly got jealous, again.
Today, I'm coming back to you,
to love you for the second time.
I don't know if we could have the feelings back,
Yet I'm trying my best to win again your heart,
To hear you saying those magical words and promises, again.
I won't expect for something,
But I am willing to wait 'til our hearts will finally be reunited and beat as one.
