Can We Be More Than Friends?

by Stacey de Luna

We have been friends for years
Asking you this is my biggest fear
I've had a crush on you forever
I hope soon we'll be together
I've told my other friends about my crush
They said it was a ton of mush
I don't care what they say
I just want you with me always
This secret is tearing my pride
I just want you by my side
I want to be with you more than anything
I'm just scared that what I say will mean nothing
I want to ask you so bad
But what you say might make me sad
I have to ask you this before the day ends
Could we ever be more than friends?
