A Poem of Friendship by Nikki Giovanni

We are not lovers 
because of the love 
we make 
but the love 
we have 
We are not friends 
because of the laughs 
we spend 
but the tears 
we save

I don't want to be near you 
for the thoughts we share 
but the words we never have 
to speak
I will never miss you 
because of what we do 
but what we are 
together
