I'll Listen

I see that smile in your eyes
the way your cheeks are flushed
your entire face begins to glow
whenever you say his name

I elbow you and giggle
just like a good friend would
and tease you relentlessly 
as only a best friend could
but I also give you good advise
when it comes to love and boys
and give you someone to confide in
whenever you need to vent

I know exactly how you feel
scared of rejection yet curious still
the same way I once felt
and I know if he said no 
your hopes and dreams would melt
but of course I would stand beside you
because we're friends no matter what
I'll listen to your feelings
and help you sort them out
