I haven't known you long.
It's only been a year.
Up until then, you were just another peer.
I met you on the trip.
Our vacation from it all.
But even then, I'd still ignore you in the hall.
We met again this year,
With Sarah as our link.
It seems like it was then that our minds began to sync.
You pulled at my mask,
And got me a date.
I think back on it now, it had to be fate.
Then we grew apart
For several months I was alone.
I would have opened up to you sooner, if only I had known.
Then you asked me how I felt,
And for some reason, I told you.
The me of several years ago would have been untrue.
But I took off my mask
And saw the sun you shine
And I broke down the wall and let you cross the line.
I confessed to everything,
Told you about my life,
Projected all my worries, pain, and strife.
And you accepted me
You gave me a bog old hug
You said you'd be a friend to me and stopped me from pulling the plug.
Now you and I are close
The best it's even been
I know I'll never feel that kind of pain again.
You woke me up and pinched me
Showed me it's not a dream
And I'm not worried now; I know you're on my team.
