When I felt happy beyond measure

I came to believe you were a treasure

You held me like an oyster

And found that elegant pearl within.

My eyes worshiped you

But you had your sights set beyond

To give a helping hand-you were first

But never to hold my hand.

Quietly, I have loved you

Even when you drifted away

Even with another as you swayed

Tears washed out some pain

From my love, there seemed nothing to gain

With another glance of you

A word of acknowledgement

My heart ruled out that voice

Of rationality.

Time and space

Between us, I did place

But with every heartbeat

I heard your name

When I felt love and hate

You were there because you did create.

On happy days my head sings

‘He’s not the one’

But on the rest, my heart weeps

What if? What if?
