Their love story...put into words.
The story begins when they were both young
The freshman year of Lincoln high had just begun.
It starts with Ross Geller or known as a geek,
He had fallen for a maiden he did not want to seek.
A girl named Rachel is whom he had fallen for,
Unaware of the future that lay in store.
For four good years he had harbored this love,
But Rachel, clueless, had known nothing of.
They eventually had drifted apart,
And this managed to tear Ross' heart.
He had found someone else and his wound had mended,
Yet a few years later this love had ended.
Ross was back where he had started,
In love with Rachel and brokenhearted.
He hoped with her return to rekindle the friendship they once had.
But in doing, only made him more sad.
For he had to watch her every single day,
Wanting to tell her how he felt, with no words to say.
Rachel had no clue, no idea, not one little bit.
Twas only because he was that good in hiding it.
When time had passed, dear friends came to his side.
They told him to get off this hopeless ride.
They gave him advice and told him to move on,
so he followed, but in the process, something went terribly wrong.
At Rachel's birthday,
Chandler, his friend had let it slip,
What Ross had been hiding under his lip.
The news had shocked Rachel to her very core,
She had never expected this, why didn't she see this before?
Rachel was bewildered. So many things rushing through her head.
What she should do, was still vaguely said.
She sought for Ross when he was to return,
but a surprise was near that she would soon learn.
Departing the plane, A girl beside Ross walked,
They weren't just friends, for they did more than talk.
Seeing this shocking scene, Rachel attempted to flee, But only just hurting herself more than she had planned to be.
She returned home, hurt and heartbroken.
Now she knows what her heart had spoken.
She's fallen for Ross without her own consent,
now watching him everyday was like harsh punishment.
Her heart had forced all deep feelings inside,
only to her dear friends could she confide.
Eventually the feelings built up so tight,
They all came out in a mistake on one night.
Awaking the next morning with no knowledge of her mistake, had later a price that she was forced to take.
She had unknowingly called Ross confessing her love, which left Ross stunned with a situation to think of.
Nervous and confused Ross had left with no words to say, and Rachel just stood right there in the doorway.
But twas nothing like this later on that night,
where Ross had come around again but just to argue and fight.
After they fought Ross had stormed off without another word leaving Rachel to cry.
But shortly after he left, He returned, watched her and heard her sigh.
She turned to find his face staring through the door, his heart reaching out, yearning for her once more.
She walked and opened the doors, to find him standing in the doorway, then grabbing her close to
take her away.
They kissed for minutes before returning to reality, but Rachel found herself trailing back to insanity.
For Ross now had to make a choice, whom should he choose?
Who shall be cast aside? Whom would he lose?
He had made a mistake and ended up losing both loves.
Rachel was left hurting from what Ross had done, and Ross was left hurting, sad with no one.
Eventually over a kindness Ross had done for her,
they got together, and this time his love was sure.
This love had lasted what seemed like forever, until someone had pulled the plug and the relationship began to sever.
They broke up with hearts left broken and tears that had been shed.
They both thought for now, their relationship was dead.
Things became awkward more and more every day,
their voices were shut with nothing to say.
Faster than she had expected Ross found love again,
While Rachel still needed more time for her heart to mend.
They thought they would fall in love on that one blissful night, but the very next day was soon to be a fright.
They thought they had reunited again, but in the end the decided to stay friends.
Jealousy had drifted near after a good long while,
Rachel played the game with a sinister smile.
It was a fierce battle between the two,
But then Ross found someone he was really
Her name was Emily, a sweet, gentle girl.
But right then, Ross believed she was his world.
Who was the one who united these two?
It was his first love Rachel, she couldn't believe it was true.
They decided to get married as early as possible,
you'd think that this couple would be unstoppable.
But Rachel had realized what everyone else already did, she still had feelings for Ross she had never got rid.
So she flew all the way to London to tell him what she was feeling, but something had stopped her leaving her reeling.
She saw the love Ross had for Emily, and started to give up, struggling, and unwillingly.
At the wedding she had watched her life quickly slip away, heart aching, and breaking, with nothing left to say.
But just as the vows were to be complete, Ross let something slip and fell into defeat.
Rachel is what he said when he made his vow,
oh boy, was Emily fuming now.
The reception went terrible for she had gone away,
with Ross left alone and with his friends he would stay.
He searched for her all night and all day,
but she was no where to be found, leaving Ross at dismay.
He had then found her and asked her to come back,
but something she asked for had thrown him off track.
She asked for separation between Rachel and him,
or she would not come, so it was no win
For could he ever stay away from his dear friend?
Or would he break another
marriage in the end?
He choose what was good, what was fair, what was right.
Yet all in all he had not won that fight.
Of course it was Rachel he had to choose,
but either way he would win and
After these events it had put him right back where he started:
Alone, without love, and even more brokenhearted.
Then one vacation took things to higher stakes,
Cards were played, chances were made, and so were mistakes.
Ross and Rachel were so greatly intoxicated they weren't in right mind, a surprise had rose that they would soon find.
They had gotten married and it was legal as law,
as permanent as pen when your write or draw.
You'd expect them to divorce, to Ross this was the third, but there was something inside him that had occurred.
He claimed he needed no third divorce, but it was something else, something more, that by him, no annulment was enforced.
Alas, he could not stay married to Rachel for twas not what she wanted, but after the divorce his heart had felt taunted.
Then came one night where the adventure took a major turn, it was the biggest event that they had left to learn.
That night they had wine and talked almost all night, then had made love but something was not right.
They thought they were fine as they had expected,
but it turns out from the proof, they were not protected.
This lack of protection came to the making of their child, a baby girl named Emma. When the news had first come, it posed a dilemma.
Ross thought that they should immediately get married, but Rachel unconvinced felt it unnecessary.
So marriage was not an option for their situation, but their relationship stayed like a train remaining at the station.
When it came for the time for Emma to arrive, everyone was happy, feeling so alive.
After the birth things changed between Rachel and Ross, something had ignited with an unknowable cause.
Sparks began to fly between the two again, yet something had interrupted, it was one of the friends.
Assuming that Joey had proposed, Rachel without doubt, "okay" was what she chose.
Joey had freaked for she had misunderstood, he was just trying comfort her, trying to do good.
But his mistake was not only explaining to Rachel his wrong, but it was failing to tell Ross for way too long.
Ross became furious, almost in denial, they became friends again, after a while.
So Rachel and Ross raised Emma as good friends,
but eventually, of course, we had to tie loose ends.
Just when Ross and Rachel were starting to get closer than ever, Something had happened that you think could never.
Rachel got fired but something more had come,
She accepted a job in Paris, moving far where she was from.
Ross heard this news and was deeply devastated, he had not realized what his feelings stated.
He was in love with Rachel, like he was before,
so he tried to fix this situation, cause with her he was hoping for more.
He sought out her old boss, pleading for her job back, bribing, conniving, going completely out of whack.
She wanted to go but he wanted her to stay, so outside he'd be telling her to go, while his heart and mind told him no.
Then when the night came of her going away affair, there was a sense of sadness that had filled the air.
When it came time for their separate goodbyes, tears fell on their faces so, first Monica then Phoebe, Chandler and Joey, then finally Ross would go.
But Rachel left Ross without a word to say,
upset, confused, and in complete dismay.
He charged on over to her apartment, upset and feeling like nothing to her, arguing it made her upset, for you could infer.
After Ross had done so, she waited a while, before storming into his apartment, obviously with no smile.
She explained how hard it was to say to him goodbye, for every time she'd think about it, she would practically cry.
Shocked by her argument, no words were spoken, then as she began to leave his heart was no more at all broken.
He called her name, she turned around,
they kissed, made love, and their old love was re-found.
The very next morning Ross found the truth, he could not deny it for this time there was proof.
The previous night was amazing, you could tell the love between the two, so as he realized this very thought, he knew what he was to do.
He wanted to talk to Rachel and see what she would say, how she would react to him asking her to stay.
When he was going to tell her, something she said made him sadly sigh, for that blissful night to her, was the perfect way to say goodbye.
This news crushed Ross' heart. This is not what should be happening. There was no way no how, he was quickly saddening.
Joey and Phoebe trying to get him in a stable state, fought to find a way to make him see straight.
They told him to tell her what he was feeling, but all he could do was look down and up at the ceiling.
He wanted to tell her, but how would things change? How could he fix this? What would be rearranged?
At Monica's apartment just before she left, she pulled Ross aside to say his goodbye.
They were both on the verge of tears as you could see in their eyes, and as she walked out the door, they all gave great sighs.
Phoebe argued, "So you just let her go?", he had no choice, but his heart was saying no.
Then after some thought he finally answered no, he went to go after her, for he was not prepared to let her go.
So with Phoebe he went to the airport she was traveling, things were so tense while his mind was unraveling.
They thought they had made it they thought it was true, but it had turned out it was not where she went to.
So they traveled again, finding where she went, but with short time left, Phoebe went straight to the extent.
She called up Rachel and gave her a scare, that would get her and everyone else off the plane before it took flight to the air.
This managed to stop her from leaving to give them more time, Ross was left thinking, I know she should be mine.
When they finally reached the airport, Ross sprinted to the gate, hurrying to find her, to kiss her, to meet his fate.
He caught up with her just as she was about to board the plane, Rachel was confused and thought Ross was going insane.
He told her don't go, I love you so much and I know you love me too, but at this point Rachel had something difficult to do.
She had to make a choice her dream or her love, I bet she was just wishing "all of the above".
It hurt her so much, for you could see it on her face, she decided to leave, she was really leaving this place.
As she was walking towards the gate, they both became slightly teary-eyed, for they knew this was the final goodbye.
Ross returned home as heartbroken as you could ever be, he didn't want to be but now he was free.
He was hurt and in pain, but somehow he was still sane.
As he walked into his empty apartment, feeling alone, he sat on the couch and checked his phone.
There was a message from Rachel who was very upset, but then she said something that had stopped him from his sadness and fret.
She told him that she loved him but that wasn't all, she said she needed to see him, this is what nearly made Ross fall.
He jumped to his feet listening to her voice, he waited for what she was doing and he was happy with her choice.
But the flight attendant would not let her leave, and when she hung up the phone he panicked and the message he began to re-read.
He was yelling and asking did she get off the plane did she get off the plane, he was going insane.
He wanted all of his questions soon to be found and these questions were answered when he had turned around.
She was standing there in the doorway just waiting for his embrace, they ran to come together to meet face to face.
They kissed a great kiss, for he was with her and she was with him, together forever, perfect bliss.
In the end all in all, of course they ended up together, hopefully married with kids, loving each other forever.
They were finally together and everything was fine, and at least they got to have the greatest love affair of all time.
