The love I never knew, the hands I never felt, the eyes that never knew mine, the heart I never won, and the soul I never merged with in my short life.

Reminiscence

I saw her first, alongside her mother, My mind roved at the sight of her beauty, The last memory I have left of her, Was the first smile she ever gave me: I saw her, and said not a word However, I gave her but a stare, Not only her face, but her soul was I to allured. At the moment, She became translucent, I saw the truth; she was pure, soft and fair.

I was attracted to her every movement, My eyes were compelled to watch over her, My heart raced fast whenever I heard her voice, I had a fear of disappointment, Scared to be rejected, So I gave up on her, I had no choice.

Besides...her friends made her laugh, And many liked her. I wish had the strength to approach her with words close to 'how much I loved her, Although did I not know her, Her eyes spoke to mine on behalf of her, Did I not have the right to be with her? Why wait all these years to finally realise that I loved her? I could've been more than just an admirer, Things might've changed, and I'd be her lover

If never knowing her beauty was nature's plan, Why do I feel the saddest among all who have known her, and yet we never spoke, I accept now that it is too late, I'll never be her man, It seems my desire were but a mere joke, Or was I but a coward, who never could provoke?
