Someone sent this to me and it has a lesson to teach all of us in so many ways.


10th Grade
As I sat there in English class, I stared at the girl next to me.
She was my so-called "best friend". I stared at her long, silky
hair. I wished she were mine, but she didn't notice me like that.
And I knew it. After class she walked up to me and asked me for
the notes she had missed the day before, and I handed them to her.
She said "thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I wanted to
tell her. I wanted her to know that I don't want to be just
friends. I love her, but I'm just too shy. And I don't know why.

11th Grade
The phone rang. It was her on the other end. She was in tears,
mumbling on and on about how her love had broken her heart. She
asked me to come over because she didn't want to be alone, so I
did. As I sat next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes,
wishing she was mine. After 2 hours, a Drew Barrymore movie, and
three bags of chips, she decided to go to sleep. She looked at me,
said "thanks," and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell
her. I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends. I
love her, but I'm just too shy. And I don't know why.

12th Grade
The day before prom she walked to my locker. "My date is sick,"
she said. He's not going to go. Well, I didn't have a date and in
7th grade we made a promise that if neither of us had dates we
would go together just as "best friends," so we did. Prom night
after everything was over I was standing at her front door step.
I stared at her. She smiled at me and stared at me with her crystal
eyes. I want her to be mine, but she doesn't think of me like
that, and I know it. Then she said, "I had the best time, thanks!"
and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her. I want her to
know that I don't want to be just friends. I love her, but I'm
just too shy. And I don't know why...

Graduation Day
A day passed. A week passed. A month passed. Before I could blink,
it was graduation day. I watched as her perfect body floated like
an angel up on stage to get her diploma. I wanted her to be mine,
but she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it. Before everyone
went home, she came to me in her smock and hat, and she cried as I
hugged her. Then, she lifted her head from my shoulder and said,
"You're my best friend, thanks!" and gave me a kiss on the cheek.
I want to tell her. I want her to know that I don't want to be
just friends. I love her, but I'm just too shy. And I don't know why...

A Few Years Later
Now, I sit in the pews of the church. She is getting married, now.
I watched her say, "I do" and drive off to her new life, married
to another man. I wanted her to be mine but she didn't see me like
that, and I knew it. But before she drove away, she came to me and
said, "You came!" She said, "thanks!" and kissed me on the cheek.
I want to tell her. I want her to know that I don't want to be
just friends. I love her, but I'm just too shy. And I don't know why...

Funeral
Years passed, and I looked down at the coffin of the girl who used
to be my best friend." At the service they read a diary entry she
had written in her high school years. This is what it read: I stare
at him wishing he were mine. But he doesn't notice me like that,
and I know it. I want to tell him. I want him to know that I don't
want to be just friends. I love him, but I'm just too shy, and I
don't know why. I wish he would tell me he loved me...

I wish I did too...
I thought to myself, and I cried.
As footsteps shies the front,
preferring the wake to decorate,
my life i pray,
shall acquire similar character.

We need this kind of sad lessons to SEE we are alive now, at this present moment ... it seems too easy to talk love, to tell I love you ... but we do not always practice it.

Good reminder …. !! thank you for it!
Love

I could see it coming from the beginning of the story.
It is why I'm a member here, a participant, a contributor.
It is why, I'm sure, you became all of the above, because there is more truth telling and love here than any site I've ever been a part of.
The people are loving, caring, creative, giving - and they have traveled that road where experience has taught them all about loving and living in the moment that is - not in the moment that you believe has passed you by.
The story is a poignant reminder that what we see in the other, is what they see in us, - live your love, forgive your trespasses, breathe in the grace of life, so that regret is never a part of your vocabulary.
Thank you for the story - it's moral is to live the life you have imagined.
Love, joy, peace, and blessings,

Morning Bear
For me to believe in you doesn't require that you believe in me,...it only simply requires that you know and thus become all that you are meant to be. MB
