I’ve known you for 10 years,
your family is my family.
You have helped me through so much,
our bond is stronger than ever
Yet I am dying inside.
I have feelings for you
And the pain is overwhelming.
I cannot let you see how I feel.
I see you with your girlfriend,
your face shines with happiness,
I feel no hatred, no jealousy.
I feel only pain because of my feelings,
also joy that you are such a big part of my life.
To tell you how I feel would be wrong,
if I could though, it would be five words
instead of three.
Everyone says “I love you,”
but that isn’t enough for me.
If I could tell you how I feel,
I would have to say;
“I love you three thousand.”
And even that may not be enough.
