More Than a Friend

How do you say goodbye to your heart?

How do you say goodbye to your soul?

How do you say goodbye

To your life?

Your dream?

-----------------------------------

Every time you look at me now

Can't help but think of how

The days are dwindling away

Until I head off into that distant horizon

So far away

Away from you

Your smile, your laughter, your joy, your eyes

Your love

------------------------------------------------

The times spent with you mean more to me now

And my heart wishes they would never end

So I could spend the rest of my days in this world with you

Before I join you again in His Above

To share with you unending love

-----------------------------------------------

Tears fall as I write of you

Thinking of how much I'll miss being with you

Sharing my life with you

I know, this isn't goodbye forever

After all, distance means nothing, right?

I can always visit you in my dreams and in my heart

Or maybe even for real

--------------------------------------------------

I know that there is a possibility that we will drift apart

But remain friends forever.

Friends?

Don't tell me that I can be content with just being your friend.

Calling you a friend would be like calling a rose a weed.

Impossible, for you are so much more than a friend.

You are my guardian angel

My darling one

My true love

To call you friend . . .just a friend….

I could never do that to you

-----------------------------------------

You gave me a chance

When no one else would

You believed in me

When no one else would

You fought for me

When no one else would

You cried for me

When no one else would

You loved me

When no one else would

------------------------------

Can't you understand?

You will always, always be more than "just a friend"

Even if society and everyone else thinks of us that way, someday

To me, darling, you will always be my love

To me you will always be my soldier with wings

You will always, always be

The one who made me, me

The one who helped me See
