If only he knew
by   Anonymous

You were never even there...

The First time I saw you I knew it was true,
I'll love you forever & that I'll do. 
I look at you and everything around me Fades;
I could only hear your voice driving me insane. 

You reach down to hold my hand, I look in your eyes,
   they were filled with tears
But you smiled knowing that I'd reach back out to you. 
I can't hear anything around me 
   except the words you whispered in my ear.

"I love you & I promise you from this day we will never be apart."
All I can remember was I gave my best smile, 
Then reached out to you and gave my hand to you... from my heart. 

I look at you, and see the excitement in your eyes 
Just because I reached back out to you. 
We hold hands walking down the street with the lights in our eyes.

You glance at me and say, "I love you," 
I reply, "I love you too". 
We walk into the horizon knowing this is all wrong.
We let nothing in our way until the time comes to say, "goodbye". 

I wait till morning to see you again,
I walk by your house- seeing no one there. Then I realized... 

You were never even there.
