We Are Better As Friends- a poem

It is Better for us To Be Friends.
It is Better for us To Be Friends. | Source

We've now been apart
For the past ninety seven days
We see each other still
In the place of
Worship and Praise.
The Lord knows our hearts
And knows in His plan
That I can not shake
What I feel for this man.

It is all about maturity
It is all about love
And about honoring
Someone's wish for
The plan from above.
I am still glad to be free
In a space called my own.
Individuality rests
And from this we have grown.

There are no advances,
No second chances.
No calls from strangers
After subtle sweet glances.
Daily routine takes priority
So no changes for me.
I can not find time
For anyone new to see.

It would be too soon
To start a romantic affair
I am just comfortable
Being friends with whom
I still care.


We are friends now
And that is fine with me.
It is proven that this
Relationship is now
Anxiety Free.

Nice poem about friendship having more value than love and romance. It does bring tears to your eyes though even when separated and friendship is no longer in existence, in other words, the couples never see each other. Voted up this hub because I like it.

A very mature and thoughtful poem! Great effort is obvious, literary skill gleams brilliantly too! Awesome writing! Keep it up! Glad to follow such a calm and collected writer with artistic flair!

Sometimes friendship is deeper than romantic love. Perhaps that is how its meant to be. If it isn't it is sure to evolve when the time is right. Beautiful my friend!
