Because I Love Them

I created this setting
Something from a book
We were holding hands
Giving each other that love like look

You were mine
I was yours
Perfect harmony
I was sure

Your green eyes staring back at me
My hazel eyes in a trance
I waited for this for years
I never thought I had a chance

Today I realized I didn't
Your eyes weren't aimed at me
They were aimed at my best friend
And I just wanted to scream

You said that you were sad
I said I'd cheer you up
I thought this was my moment
But I guess I have no such luck

I invited you to come with us
We were gonna have some fun
A night of weird adventures
And a night of secret love

But my best friend had your attention
She made sure she had it too
I don't know if she knew I loved you
But I didn't try to intrude

You kindly said I made you happy
But you continued on with her
As the night rolled on and on
It passed me in a blur

You said we should hangout
But you really just meant her
And although you didn't know it
That made my whole heart hurt

I asked her what she thought
She said she felt the same
But she said she wouldn't try
If it would cause me pain

I told her we're just friends
That's all we'll ever be
I wanted them both happy
Even if it killed me

My best friend took my love
But I gladly gave him away
I gave them what they wanted
What more is left to say?

My love didn't notice
And my best friend didn't see
Putting them together
Completely shattered me

I love her like a sister
And I love him like he's mine
As long as they are happy
I'll let them both stay blind

I don't want them to see how much it hurts
So I'll let their relationship keep pending
I’ll be on the sidelines
Living my Happy Never After Ending.
