    It was amazing
    First Mat 111 lecture,
    I was seated right in front minding my business
    As if Business i had,
    First day at UNi

    He walks in to class, looking classy
    Classy, yes I say classy
    Could not explain the feeling I got
    Yes that’s him, from that high school...
    H e sat two seats away from me, never said a word
    He never said a thing
    For weeks I observed the same routine

    With my eye sparkling
    You tell me from tears or diamonds...?
    I looked away, for it was too much
    I could not help it
    Too much to handle
    To handle such a pretty thing
    That looked like “so full of himself”
    Right by my side, just two seats away
    Hoping one day he would
    Notice me? No, yes
    No just one day say hi
    Just open his lips and say hi
    But it was still to come
    It never happened
    how could he not?


    A part of me let go
    Let go for there no need
    No need to hold on to the unknown
    But there was a need to observe
    Observing from a distance
    To get a glimpse and see what happens

    It went on for the whole semester
    Semester after semester subjected to that torture
    You! The torture a seat away
    Can I touch you? I wondered
    Hold your hand? Should I say hi?
    I thought why should I? I gave up!
    More I heard rumour he knew his game, Player?
    I ain no gossip monger,
    So I ask are you???
    Well I kept myself informed
    Informed of his where, how, what abouts
    Till it hit me, He ain available no more
    At least not for me
    But you might have been for everyone else
    Everyone who wanted you that way
    Who had an eye for you?
    I wanted you to be my friend
    I had put my feeling away
    Long-time ago and locked them in

    Then one day while going thru the book of faces
    I came across a face, it smiled at me, I smiled back
    I smiled back because I had the courage
    The courage to pick up the pieces and click the mouse
    To resume what could have been years ago
    What I could have done years ago
    There is no risk of hurt/rejection now
    Just want friendship and to keep in touch
    Remember my feelings were and are locked away...

    So I resume just to get a response
    I unleashed what I long should have done
    And came up with a big buddy
    Who I never said to nor he to me
    Though we spent more than two years passing
    Passing each other along corridors

    I thank my mouse, it was worth it
    Finally having a chance to say hi
    That’s all I needed hi
    Well, what can I say?
    Need I say more! I will
    When times comes I will
    There is too much to say to you
    But.....forever hold my peace.....

    From Me to u, buddy turned friend
