Friend Questions


Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?

If I were to tell you, my darling friend,

That I think that I'm falling for you,

Would you feel I'd been lying? Would our friendship end?

What would you say; what would you do?

Well, I know well I shouldn't, I know in my place

I must only be strictly platonic

But it feels like a romance, and though we've been chaste

I would drink you right down like a tonic

But I don't think I dare, just because I do care

For you as a good friend, don't you see,

And if I lost your goodwill and drove you from here

I would lose not just you; also, me.

Yes, there's too much to risk, so I'd better fly right

And preserve the good thing we've got on;

As the Ink Spots once sang, if you guess it tonight,

I'll confess and we'll see a new dawn.

This was a singularly lovely piece. I'm disappointed that I didn't see it until now.
