I began to have feelings for my best friend, who is with someone. I couldn't help feeling for her because she was so kind and caring to me, more than my friends ever have. She told me that she had feelings for me also - so, I had to write this as my gift to her.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Love and Friendship Poems

My Gift To You
I live through my dark existence
only to bask in your beauty
your eyes that shine like sapphires
your smile that brightens even my sad existence
I envy the wind that runs through your hair
that touches your lips
I long to touch you
to hold you in my arms but I cannot
for your heart belongs to another
so, I can only love you from afar
your friendship means more to me
than anything this world provides
but like an angel you touched my heart
in a way that I've never felt before
cause I've never known what love is until this day
I know that we are only friends
but my heart wishes it to be more
so I will still hope and dream
that one day I can feel your lips pressed to mine
to hold you in my arms and say, "I love you"
