Letter To A Friend

I’m here to listen to your woes each time you cry
You tell me you love him, that I cannot deny
But he doesn’t see your worth as much as I do
This is for the love, unrequited yet it’s true

You know, it’s hard to pretend, for me to carry on
When I’m only a friend, a shoulder to lean on
But no matter what, I’ll never ever leave you
This is for the love that is always here for you

Still, I thank you, love, for the gift of your friendship
ā€ˇSeeing you happy with him takes away my hardship
Yet somehow, I hope for a future of me and you
This is for the love, hoping someday you’ll feel it, too

The Only One

I see the vulnerability in your eyes
Your guard is down and you’re no longer in disguise
But he is the only one who can protect you
The only one who can wipe away your blues

I sense the love coming from your very soul
It’s penetrating my core making me whole
But he is the only one who can see through you
The only one who can compliment a love that’s true

I feel passion emanating from your being
A light of zeal and sensuality you are bringing
But he is the only one destined to touch you
The only one who can be in paradise with you

With just a kiss from him and all your fears are gone
You start to assume that he is the only one
But here I am, you know I could be the one
Let me in and I’ll prove to you that I am THE one

Could I Be The One?

Author’s Note (more like a disclaimer): So after writing this, I realized it is similar to a Jollibee (most famous fast food chain in the Philippines) commercial aired a couple of months ago but it wasn’t the inspiration to this. In the last stanza, I was thinking of the song 25 Minutes by Michael Learns To Rock (cheesy but they were a hit in the Philippines back in the day). Anyways, enough of the disclaimer…

I wish I could be the one
Who will comfort you
Who will hear your pain
And listen to your woes
Then take your hand
An tell you it’s fine

I wish I could be the one
Whom you’ll turn to
In times of joy or hurt
To be everything you need
Then show you true love
And let you know it’s real

I wish I could be the one
Who will hold you tight
Who will kiss your lips
And feel you close to me
Then be the first person you’ll see
When the morning comes

But he’s standing next to you
With a promise of forever
Sealed with a ring and a kiss
And as you both walk down the aisle
Hand in hand, overjoyed
How I wish… I could be him
