in love with my best friend

Standard

In love with my best-friend

Riva Mendoza

You and I are best of friends

You always protect me since we were kid

I felt comfortable every time I’m with you

I wanted to be with you wherever you go

When we are in high school I felt this feeling

I can’ believe that I am in love with my best friend

I’m afraid because this will end our friendship

I decided to keep the feelings and loving you secretly

When you started to court someone

My heart started to broke into pieces

I want to tell to you that I am the best

I am the best and I know you very well

The time came and you don’t have enough time for me

The worst thing is she asks you to start avoiding me

She wants to end our friendship …

The good thing is you refuse to end the friendship

18.  A problem you have…
