I just realized something.
All of those times I stood with you
Listening to you
Laughing with you
Sharing beliefs with you.
Trying to understand your pain
As you tried to understand mine.
I was falling in love with you.
I truly enjoyed my time with you.
You can be an ass
But you know when to back off.
I love you
And I know you love her.
But what surprised me the most
Was that I'm okay with it.
She makes you happy
And your happiness is all I ask for.
Just promise to keep smiling.
I'm one of the few to see you near tears.
One of the few to listen to you in a time of need.
And you're an amazing friend.
You never fail to make me smile.
I may love you
But I'm okay with just loving you
Because I like what we are now.
I know life is tough
But be strong
You deserve to find joy.
Get out of this town once you can
It's far to small for your dreams.
I love you,
