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
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?
