The Key

Time has not been kind or gentle,  
passing you by with unrequited  
summers, your youth vanished  
while dreams chased life away.  

I have waited, hoped and dreamed  
along with you, loving you has become  
my obsession, years ago, when we  
were younger, I wanted to tell you.  

Why do so many act blind within  
that bright moment of love, I
was not blind, but mute, I could not  
speak, would you have listened?  

I wanted to be the one to wind
through that path, to you, I never
took that chance, maybe I was  
scared, afraid of rejection.  

No one can turn back time, I have
prayed, our friendship survived,  
I wiped away your tears when  
you were hurt, when I was lonely.  

I may have held the key too long,  
never trying to open your heart,  
just when I am ready to try, I  
found out that you reluctantly  
discarded that lock years ago.
