I admire her from a distance.

As you would a piece of art.

Afraid to say things that I feel.

To touch or share my heart.


My body is a vessel.

With a heart of stone within.

I fear for all to see it .

Or to use it once again.


I wore it on my shoulder .

For all the world to see.

It seems I gave it freely.

And it got the best of me.


If my life could be started over.

I would pick a different time.

'One where I wouldn't know her.

Or ever have her on my mind.


If now I was struck with blindness.

If I could never see again.

Her face would never leave me.

Her love always within.
