I want to fall in love with you
and honestly I try
to get my heart to pulse with a stronger force
every time you walk by.

But it won't work. I cannot be
so sure about you as you are about me,
and though you're the greatest friend I'll ever have -
maybe that's all.

I will try. For your sake, and maybe for mine,
because if I can't love you, maybe I can't love
anyone. And when I run out of time,
I'll just be alone. Trying to undo
the years that I wasted, not loving you.
