My Beautiful Friend

Why do you tease me, my beautiful friend?

Why do you keep me 'at bay'?

I try and I try to get closer to you,

but you keep on moving away!


I cannot get closer, the more that I walk.

You keep a safe distance from me.

But please do not think that I'm someone to fear.

Just trust that I'll let you stay free.


Your brilliance continues to draw me to you.

Your beauty I do not deserve.

The colors you wear seem to weaken my knees.

I cannot get over your curve.


I can't get around and I can't get beneath -

yet you are beyond grandiose.

I know no one ever has touched you before,

and I can't begin to get close.


Although I can't touch you or hear what you say,

maybe apart, we aren't far..

And though you don't care to get close to me,

a beautiful rainbow you are!
