It is not what you are or how much you own, but who you are.

Forever didn't last as long as we intended for it to be.
Still, we've lived our lives with eternal integrity.
At times it was harder on us than ourselves.
You've got to admit that we've had those times,
times where the world seemed to be crashing down.
Those were, of course, our arguments.
Though we have our fallen world,
you're always there for me,
and I want to reciprocate.
I will,
starting now.

The author's comments:
I was reading a story I wrote about two years ago. It was a tale of love and how sometimes the best thing two people who love eachother can do is stay away from one another. The boy in the story was in love with a girl who had no other choice but to be distant, otherwise, she'd kill her lover (obviously not by choice). The point of this poem was oxymoronic to my story. Sometimes, even if it hurts to admit to your feelings, it's the best possible thing you can do. This was my inspiration to tell my friend how I felt about him too. Hopefully, you can look back on this for some similar inspiration!
