Nothing More Than a Friend
I wrote this in 1997.
You've been with her for a long, long time
And it's tearing me up inside
Because I know you love her, and she loves you
But there is nothing I can do
We've been friends, and I guess you never knew
As my love for you grew and grew
I should not have tried to hide
Keeping my feelings locked up inside
From the moment we first met
You turned my head
Back then you weren't attached to anyone
And I could have been the one
But for now, I'll continue to hide away
I'll pass you each and every day
And as each day comes to an end
You'll still be nothing more, than a friend

Micro-messages are small, subtle, and often covert messages that may or may not convey the same message as the actual words being said. Learning more about them will aid with better communication.
Sometimes it is not anything tangible, but an act that communicates love best. Take that into consideration when giving from the heart to a loved one. Also, recognize why love offered may not be felt.
