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.
