Although it's been years since we have last spoken,
And you'll never see this appreciative token,
I have a few things that I wish you to hear.
I trust your response won't be too cavalier.
I had feelings for you, but you never knew.
Perhaps because I never wanted you to.
And perchance that's a lie, I hoped you would see
That maybe one day, an "us" there could be.
As time hurried on, we remained "just friends",
You moved away, and I learned there are ends.
But a lesson you taught me I'll never forget,
How a friend treats another; with grace and respect.
While it's not surprising that we've grown apart,
There remains for you still, a fond place in my heart.
Sometimes I think of you, and I know it's sappy,
But I wish you well, and I hope you are happy.
