Two Letters In the Sand
Such a sweet diary of best friends. They may take a long journey to life but in the end, I wish that love will still prevail.
Best friends are like stars. Only the true ones will shine to guide you in the dark while other lights fade away.
Girl: I’m in love with him
But I’m afraid to show my feelings
What if he will walk away from me?
What if he will never see?
Boy: I’m in love with her
But I’m afraid to reveal
What if she will ignore me?
What if she will never care?
Girl: He is too precious to fall in love with
He is like a fragile crystal gem
With his innocent smiles
Who would not go crazy in love with him?
Boy: She is too precious to be hurt
Which she doesn’t deserve
She is like a princess in a fairytale
So charming, so quite, unheard.
Girl: He will not fall in love with me
He is only a fantasy
He deserves someone better
Someone who could love him forever
Boy: Who am I to make her heart beat on me?
She is only a dream of my life
She wants someone else
And I don’t want to cry.
Girl: I hope he will see me.
Boy: I wish she will love me.
Girl: I’m afraid...
Boy: I’m scared...
Girl: ...just because I’m his best friend.
Boy: ...just because I’m her best friend.
This is an ordinary tale of best friends secretly in love with each other. They’re scared to let go of their friendship and risk falling in love. Scared to let others know how they really feel.
They are afraid they might lose the person they care for once the secret is revealed. And once the secrets are out, there will be changes and life will never be the same again.Whatever way they choose, they are just beginning to see the real beauty of what we call “life”.
What do you think happened? Did they become lovers? Or stayed that way forever? Choosing love over friendship or choosing friendship over love? I bet the first one is difficult, choosing love over friendship.
It requires sacrifice of the things you love and care about because you know something along the way you might find a broken road. You don’t know if it that love was meant to be or you should have stayed that way.
I did have a quite bestfriends way back when I was still studying. It’s so easy to make friends but so rare to find a true one. Some befriended you because they have wanted something from you. But really, when we are young, these things keep our life up. These things give spice to the boring exams and long hours of lab works.
And they are the best memories we are storing to be remembered in the future. Girls have so many insecurities, so many preferred to have the opposite sex as a friend. But along the way, you will realize, you fell in love.
Maybe for some it is love they felt toward their friend, but for me, I think they have fallen in love with the friendship. Believe me, I’ve been there myself.
Here’s one of my favourite quote about friendship:
"He’s not my boyfriend, but I love his eyes, his smiles, his laughs and the times we were together. I guess I fell in love with our friendship..."
