We've just been friends, and now you're going
Far away for many years.
But please don't leave me without knowing
How I feel as your time nears.

I know you're older, more mature,
And far beyond me in some ways.
But there's between us something pure
That's given me some magic days.

I thank you for the loveliness
That your sweet friendship's brought to me.
Think of this poem as a caress
That says, "I love you" silently.
