The Circle of Love

by Jordan Wellnitz

From lovers to friends,

From friends to acquaintances,

From acquaintances to strangers.

The circle of love,

So it seems.

But, if you are truly in love,

Being friends should be good enough,


Sure, it hurts,

Like hell actually,

But wanting to see their bright, happy face

And comforting them when they're down,

That's all love really is.

So even if I've lost you as a lover,

At least I will still have you as a friend.

Though my heart hurts,

And I have cried until I could no more,

I will stay by your side

Until I can bare the pain no longer.
