Comfortable in the not knowing
much about you.
Why’d you have to ruin it
find a way to bond with me
pull me in to your inner circle
with kind words and smiles?
Now I’m caught in your grasp,
have to attend all your bashes
laugh at your jokes
hold your hand when you crumble.
Of course, you do that for me too
so maybe I am just a fool
to forget the joy you’ve brought me.
A friend of a friend turned friend,
loyal until the very end
and I’m grateful in the not knowing
what would have been
if you hadn’t offered me a smile
that caused me to tumble for you.
