When Is A Friend Not A Friend?

When Is A Friend Not A Friend?


When is a friend not a friend?

When it comes to an end

And your feelings show

And then you know

That itís love

Then thereís the call

When you ring and tell all

Say youíre not playing a game

And hope that they think the same


What happens if you keep being the friend?

Because you donít want that to end

But deep inside thereís more

Right to your core

Itís love

But you keep quiet

You donít want a riot

Youíre just frightened to say

That now you canít simply stay


Being just the friend?  Will you end

Up losing everything Ė the friend

And the person that you love?

Itís just a terrible riddle

Iím in the middle

Iím lost

Since when does a lover have to stop being a friend?   My wife and I have been in love for over 36 years and consider each other our best friend.  I wouldn't have it any other way.   Your answer .... stay friends and lovers.  It works.
