Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

These last couple weeks
Have been pretty rough.
The fighting, the jealousy,
And the breakup were tough.

But through all of it,
Our friendship remained.
This friendship's forever
Pure, can't be stained.

You'll be there for me,
And I'll be there for you.
It's not even a question,
We both know it's true.

You know when you're hurt,
I'll be there to care.
And times when your happy,
Your joy I will share.

In the back of my mind
A dream'll be there through time,
Of having your love again
And your lips upon mine.

And whether that happen
Or whether it not,
I'll be falling for you
Til in your arms I'm caught.

The one thing I do know
Til time comes to an end,
Is no matter what happens,
You'll be my best friend.

I wrote this for a guy right after we had broken up after some stupid drama... luckily we are still best friends and very close to dating again =)

Very nice although it had its share of quirks. For one I love your use of selectivly ryhming only a couple lines in a stanza. I told someone else that this is a easy and effective way to creative emphasis. I feel however for what you were trying to do that perhaps if you branched out from the standard 4-4-4-4 lines it would have a prettier flow. You have great potential.

Life is a maybe. Death is for sure. Sin is the cause. Christ is the cure. :)

Love is the breath of God, and prayer is the melody that makes it sing.

If you cant annoy someone, there's no point in writing.

Love is overrated, marry for money.

I love this! Beautiful!
