We are what we repeatedly do, Excellence therefore, is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle


The hardest question
You’ll ever face
Is how to describe your feelings
When put on the spot
Minds tend to blank
And tongues begin to tie
A war of the heart
Challenges logical thought
As generic answers over flow from ones mouth
Until you are left
Sitting alone
When you finally know what to say
He is gone
So when faced with the question
What does it mean
To “like” someone
Here is what I wish I had said.
To “like” someone
Means you care about them
More than just as a friend
To “like” someone
Is what you say
When testing the water
Before you step in
To “like” someone
Is the first part of the journey
Down a long road of admiration
To “like” someone
Means you care
About their pain
And you are willing to share their burdens
To “like” someone
Means You will be there for them
Regardless of time, or weather
To “like” someone
Means you long to be
With them and keep their company
And desire for their approval
To “like” someone
Means it will hurt you
When you have to say goodbye
To “like” someone
Means in front of them
You’re not afraid to cry
To “like” someone
Can mean
So many different things
But I must tell you the truth
I “like” you
Is what I say
When I’m scared to utter
I love you.


The author's comments:
A friend of mine once asked me, "what does it mean to "like" someone" and at the time i honestly couldn't find the right words to respond. So i said something very generic, but i never let go of the thought. After a while i found the answer, but by then i realized it was to late to tell him. I had missed my chance. So this is for him.
