I saw you that day, the day that changed my life for ever.

I saw you, an angel pure and peaceful against the backdrop of everyday commotion.

After all these days, these weeks, these months no one, not even you knows how much you mean to me deep down. Sometimes I don't even know myself.

I wait for you each day, subtly looking for you, watching, dreaming from a distance. Hurting a little, a lot, falling apart knowing I can never have you. I want to talk but courage fails me every time.

My friends are still ignorant even though taking my eyes off you is becoming harder and harder each day. But you still don't notice, notice how much I love you, how much you mean to me, how much you're hurting me.

To you a guess i'm nothing really, just another stranger in this small world.

To me you're my world, my everything.

I tired to move on, find someone else, but it just wasn't the same. They just weren't you.

Can't you see I love you?

Can't you see I need you?

My time is almost up, just a few days remain, yet however much I want to talk to you, i know I just can't. I want to tell you now because tomorrow never comes, and I may not be back next year.

It saddens me to watch you in her arms, knowing that you are happy, yet I am not.

We are both people you and I,  too very different people, from too very different worlds, your heart belonging to her and the peices of mine always to you my darling.


I'm no poet, so this may not be very good, just someone feelings i've got bottled up inside me. Just someone from a school holiday thing that goes for about a week.
