You could never leave my life,
For you are too much like me;
We're too much like each other
To ever utterly separate.
Please understand that I appreciate you,
And everything that you do.
I would never want to hurt you
In any way at all.

I am not clueless,
And I know how you feel.
Can I really control it
If I don't feel the same?
After all you put me through,
Here you are again...
How did I know this would happen?
Well, fear not,
I will not ignore you,
Though I have quite a struggle within myself
To have it remain that way.
I always feel guilty
And quite out-of-line,
Constantly needing to remind myself
That you cannot control your feelings,
Anymore than I can mine.

I will help you up when you are down;
I will make a smile from that frown.
I don't know what to say,
I don't like you in that way,
But that doesn't mean it has to end.
Keep hoping,
But for now,
I'll come as a friend.
