You do not know
And you will never know
That I have this ‘thing’ for you
Ever since I saw the inner you.
But circumstances won’t allow
And the timing isn’t right
For there to be a me & you.
And so I resign
To just be a friend
A friend close enough to be a brother
A friend close enough to be a sister
For friendships are better
For friendships last while commitments often don’t.
