My New Friend
You have been brought down at last!
Finally, I see you as you really are,
as only a friend from the past,
no more my knight in shining armour.
Attractive you are, always, ever -
sweeping shoulders, massive hands -
but someone new has taken over,
though for now we are but friends.
He's shown me what true friendship is,
and while perfect he is not,
the hands I long for now are his;
his the heart that I have sought.
We may not yet be in love,
perhaps we never will,
but his friendship is enough
to keep away the lonely chill.
