My Best Friend

Seems like yesterday when I had you in my arms

I saw the tears in your dried eyes,

it wasn’t the first time.

I saw the happiness in your face and the light in your eyes

I held the hand that was extended to me

as we walked together by the sea.

Seems like the time has stopped

or I have isolated myself in this room,

a sudden good-bye that I never expected

came out of the blue.

Neither, I saw you leave

or I heard you say good-bye,

I discovered how I feel for you until tonight…

Maybe it's too late to tell you one more time,

that the true love was very close by

and yet I couldn’t see… what should be mine.

Still today… I’m trying to hold on to this friendship

that we had shared in open arms,

hearing your soft voice whispering my name…

seeing in your eyes the light turning into flame…

and caressing your face…

hoping our friendship will never end.

Still I miss you…

How could I let you go?

Maybe it was destiny,

maybe it was just something… nobody can explain,

and yet I love you more and more each day.

You will always be

in the heart that believes in faith…

… and eternally I wait… patiently… I wait.
