Just A Friend
It did not start with "hello."
In the room, I'm not the only one.
It was not from our desire
that fate has given us both.
You know I am down and below,
when I can't explain what I want.
You hold me by the fire
when I come in from the cold.
I am only a dime a dozen
as I walk through time.
I cannot be a jewel
if you hadn't polished me to a shine.
Perhaps it is not who deserves who
and probably not who does what for who.
Is it just the places in time we went through
or is the heart a place where friendship brew?
