A Villanelle dedicated to my best friend in all the world, who makes me smile every day!

 

There are three words that I want to tell you,

If I had the courage to risk it all;

Three words that every day become more true.

 

I never foresaw how our closeness grew;

Our friendship, like my soul, started so small.

There are three words that I want to tell you...

 

You stand by my side, I stand by yours too.

When we trip, we don’t let each other fall.

Three words that every day become more true...

 

I fear how it might all change if you knew.

To protect us both, I’ve kept up this wall.

There are three words that I want to tell you...

 

I wonder, have you always had a clue,

All this time humoring my silent call:

Three words that every day become more true?

 

Whether we stay friends or try something new,

I want you to know what lets me stand tall.

There are three words that I want to tell you,

Three words that every day become more true.
