    All these years....I didn't want to believe it.

    But here you are, ready to give me the love
    that I have been looking for for a while.
    Funny how I doubted it, just
    giving you smirks and a smile.

    But...you're...serious......

    I mean wait, did I miss something
    here? Is there something I missed?
    Last Tuesday we were nothing but
    the closest of friends...and then we kissed.
    I won't lie, I felt that kiss down to my soul,
    The love that you carried radiated unto my body and
    filled me whole.....

    But....we're friends.....

    I swear to GOD, I don't want to ever hurt
    you and I'm sure you feel the same.
    But David, I'm going off to college and soon
    you're going away close to Maine.
    Can this survive the distance? I really
    want to say yes.
    But that would be like gambling our future
    together, I would be taking a guess

    When you told me you wanted more.....

    I was so happy because for the longest
    time, I had wanted more as well.
    But I was concered about us: would us being
    together be Heaven or Hell?
    You keep me stable, I trust you
    completely with all my heart
    I think God knew we would end up
    together from the start.
    Becuase I will be honest with you...
    This relationship will be very long.
    But it takes two to make it work
    fall in love , and make this strong.

    I never knew......

    I always thought it would eventually happen
    In my mind, GOD built you just for me.
    He created the most handsome black man
    Who could be solely dedicated for me.
    Black as ebony, a smile that could melt steel
    Hands strong enough to hold me steady
    and eyes that could wash away whatever hatred I could EVER feel

    I know he feels the same.....

    I will always be a part of his life..
    I was his best friend for 9 years...
    and one day I will be his wife.


    *For my best friend....I have so much love for you*

    WOW...
    there's something so mesmerizing about the way
    your soul speaks so sincerely through your poetry...
    it carries a sense of innocence and newness of life...
    I no longer have those eyes...so it's always nice to
    look through yours...

    I will say...what I truly adored about this piece
    was that I didn't hear..."infatuation"...lurking beneath
    just plain "Love"...
    the sound mind and body kind...
    the kind...that you know...that you know...that you know...
    is REAL...

    If this is so...I wish you the best...sounds like you've found
    what I like to call that "Somekindawonderful"... :toast:

    Love it...
