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
