Just Friends

How do you stand looking into those eyes
Those eyes you love, softly veiled
The soul beyond which you could never reach
How do you feel when he smiles
A smile so sweet it breaks your heart
If only it were meant for you

And all of a sudden upon the wind
Through the ages, across the hills
The sadness in poetry comes alive
Enshrouding your spirit
And among the lilting notes of a sad guitar
The lyrics of loves songs from lands afar
Reach out and touch you, and would not let go

How do you handle being around him
When your every breath cries out to be loved
Every emotion fights to take over
How do you live when you can well relate
To all the love stories, poems and songs
How do you love him when he says to you
"I am in love with someone else."
