    You came into my life when there was no tomorrow
    When hope was nothing but a dream;
    You came into my life when I was full of pain and confusion
    When love was something unforeseen;

    You entered my world well protected,
    installing your place as a friend
    Being patient with me, working side by side as I,
    my heart, I try to mend;

    During the early days of our friendship,
    feelings were all out of place
    But, with great concern, you gathered them all
    and gave them their own little space;

    You showed that love was a possibility,
    if I took things day by day
    For as long as I understood my feelings,
    my heart wouldn’t get in the way;

    You’ve never let on your feelings,
    you keep them deep inside
    It seems you’re afraid to be close to someone so,
    your “busy schedule” is where you hide;

    You haven’t looked at the obvious,
    for the obvious isn’t clear
    That the only one who cares the most,
    is so far, yet so near;

    Maybe the day will come,
    when your heart will be free,
    To accept the love of others;
    to realize that “Others” is me;

    There are many doors still locked by you,
    and many still locked by me;
    Doors that only a heart that’s true
    will be able to unlock…to set free;

    I believe that you are the one in my life,
    that is willing to take the chance
    To open the doors to my heart and yours,
    and to find true romance;

    If it takes forever to find the time,
    then forever will not be that long
    For no one will tear down our “Close Friendship”;
    the feelings we share are too strong;

    If you do not feel the same way I do,
    then a hug, I shall retain
    Deep in my heart, I shall take this chance,
    for, I have so much to gain;

    So, as you shelter yourself from these feelings,
    one’s that you hold so dear,
    Just remember that when you need me, just look to your left…

    And I will be there…
