You Didn’t See Me

When I saw you
I thought
Could we
Make a life
Together, Happily
We laughed
Shared the same heart
Missed each other
When apart
Not thinking
Our lips met
Reluctantly parting
And yet
I think
You didn’t see me.

Closing In

I see you watching me
So close
Yet far away
Trying to be brave

I sense your presence
Around
Most every day
But you don’t say

I see you smiling
From afar
Holding me at bay
Hoping I won’t go away

I sense your longing
Inside
Close to afraid
So sure I won’t stay
