When its more than physical. More than sex. When you step out of your comfort zone just to show them you care. When you drop everything and head for them to insure they are ok regardless of yourself. When you give them your right hand just so you can hold their left. When your not just lovers but best friends.
When they let go or go astray. Confusing thoughts swarm your head. And lay next to them wondering who else has been in your spot in your bed. When the truth comes out and they confess to everything like you are their savior.
When your love for them goes cold and the flame dies down in that instant. All the time wasted on loving them when the were loving anyone who asked. When you lose your best friend because you became lovers and can't let go of their past.
To the one who realized what they had after they lost it all.
When you no longer think of white dresses and family outings together.
When you carry a small ember of the raging fire that use to be you and me. I wish you would set me free. Stop asking if we will ever be. Our family is gone and all that is left is the kids and I.
I never thought I would lose you. Lose my only friend. My best friend.
