He sat by her side
her friend near him too
they held up the camera
what could he do
He cozied up next to her
lit his best smile
her hand in his
they hugged for a while
He didn't let on
that his heart was alive
he wondered how
through the years
he'd survived
They laughed
they giggled
she nudged
he joked
they flirted
they wondered
she touched him
he hoped
the night would go on
for the next 25 years
but he knew the reality
he remembered the tears
from long ago
when she sat by his side
they looked at the stars
emotions denied
as quick as it started
she slipped out
of his life
he did his best
to handle the strife
he hid his feelings
he couldn't stay
he prayed for healing
he ran away
he hoped
the separation
would heal the pain
alas, he had failed
nothing to gain
but, now she is here
the picture is cast
instant memories
a lifetime they'll last..
I've waited a lifetime
to hold your hand
to see your face
to understand
to say the things
I need to say
to sing with you
along the way
There always seemed
to be no time
I always knew
you should be mine
the time wasn't right
things went awry
I left your life
I don't know why
We lost touch
I moved away
I never thought
I'd come back someday
I did my best
to forget the past
a new life began
it didn't last
somewhere in time
through the years
you looked for me
after many tears
a lifetime of mystery
unresolved loss
now you're here
was it worth the cost
half way though life
we've missed so much
you're still not my wife
I can't touch you
or kiss you
or taste your soft skin
tell you your beautiful
how can I win
I can't hold you
caress you
Intimacy? no
I guess I'll run again
where will I go
I'll discover new faces
I'll keep living the lie
I'll find new places
I'll just deny
my feelings for you
I hurt to the core
but, I've waited this long
I'll wait 25 more
I'll carry the picture
I'll hold it near
it will keep me alive
while you aren't here
I'll dream of the things
that you and I missed
a lifetime of memories
the last time we kissed
don't worry about me
I wait for tomorrow
to taste you again
the years I will borrow
subside on the last kiss
reflect on that moment
oh how I'll miss
your smile, you voice
the smell of your skin
the taste of your breath
here I go again
but I'm stronger today
than I was long ago
I know how to deal
the pain hurts me so
but a feeling of comfort
my universe alive
my thoughts illumined
I will survive
'til I hold you again
no matter how long
I have to wait
I'll be your friend
then I'll love you
like no other
until the end
