I’ve been waiting my whole life for a love like this,
but all I do is long for your presence and silently beg for your time.
In the beginning I was so lenient with everything because I was so afraid to lose you,
and now all I do is choke on my approval because I feel like you’re slipping away.
Not actually of course,
it’s just the longing that makes it feel this way.
I wish I could tell you how I’m feeling,
that would make me someone who goes back on my word.
I just wanted you to be happy.
And I didn’t want to be another one of those nagging girlfriends.
But in a way I wish I were because then you’d see just how much I care,
just how much I miss you,
and wish you were here.
Deep down inside I hope that you start to hear my silent pleas of your company,
begin to see the tears I’ve been crying all along when you weren’t around,
and realise that all I have wanted this whole time was you,
you and your happiness.
