Time Well Spent

The relationship we had was not solely built on love, but I needed it.

See, the tweets you posted were the first giveaway;

It showed your spirit and the things you believed in up until today.

I liked to lurk and favorite your tweets,

because in some way I felt our hearts were on the same beat.

 

The relationship we had was not solely built on love, but I needed it.

I admired the smile you got whenever I would come around,

Like the moon respects the sun,

We both were allowed to shine and it was profound.

Two is better than one they say,

Even when I couldn’t sleep you were just a phone call away.

Sometimes I even needed to go away and study but you were there to stay,

You helped me get good grades on my tests,

Up all night like we didn’t need any rest.

 

The relationship we had was not solely built on love, but I needed it.

The confidence you had in me when I began to forget who I was,

See I needed that.

I loved our open communication,

Even though we disagreed sometimes you were a great listener.

That light in a dark night,

That voice saying everything was gonna be alright,

That’s what helped me make it through.

I tried to be strong about my dad missing my birthday,

but you knew how important it was to me,

And that’s why I’m now happy, alive and free,

Free from the drama in my life because you helped me clear the air.

 

The relationship we had was not solely built on love, but I needed it.

Nicknames in humor instead of nicknames in decay,

That’s how we made it through a year with no breaks,

The respect we had for one another’s family time was everything but a crime

I grew to love your family like they were apart of mine.

I gave you space to be you, you gave me space to be me,

Turns out this wasn’t enough to make us meant to be.

 

The relationship we had was not solely built on love, but I needed it.

You were great,

you were enough,

Bond of compassion, hope and,

we still have an unbreakable trust,

Best friends from start to finish that’s how we kept separate love from a fetish.

And the end is still unwritten.

Why,

Because you loved me but I couldn’t quite return the love.

So we had to put our thing to an end,

I would never want our friendship to drop,

That was the healthiest way we could think to love and not stop.
