I have always loved you; held you in
my vision’s arms, in loving embrace.
Caressed you, cared for you, held in
dreams, your face close to my face.
Cherished in waking every day, that
promised some golden hours with you.
Lapping up your every smile, and
loving your cold annoyance too.
I loved it when you opened up, with
every day that we spent together.
Distance fell short, affection grew,
as we knew each other better.
You were my dream in broad daylight, as
at night you were my muse of song.
Joy at sight, thoughtful company,
sweet distraction behind every wrong.
Now in moving on, I leave you by,
my heart is numb with this secret,
that you will never know how I loved
you; I never confessed, I do not regret.
For you were never mine, and I know you never will.
But I have always loved you and will love you still.
