Mirrors and Light - Some words for my Friend


So many years have passed
Since our paths first crossed
I have never asked you
Or expected you to love me
At one time I had hoped
But I knew that could never be
I did however wish
You would always be my friend
You once said when I had angered you
“We are not engaged”
Well no we weren’t
I don’t need to be engaged to anyone
I am not seeking a fiancé or a husband
I did not want to change you
Or change your life
I admired you for whom you were
Your good qualities, your integrity
Your kindness and humanity
You say I must have faith in you
Well yes I do
Though, when you leave
The shadows of doubt move in
And I reach out to you with
Heartfelt words and there is no reply
And wonder if this time you won't return
How many years it has been now
And I have been here for you
Always … waiting
It is comforting to see you
Watching me from a distance
Sad that you don’t always venture closer
And leave some words for me
I miss your conversation and poems
Perhaps now you have nothing to say to me?
I wish I could catch the light in a mirror
And shine it in your direction
To attract your attention
When you are there at the edge of my world
Perhaps then I could speak to you
And tell you
I do not want to change your world
My world is brighter when you are near
I would just like you to be my friend ...

Thank you dear Cosmo , for your kind words. Sometimes it is necessary to say how we feel. It may have been a mistake to speak so openly but if he is my friend he should forgive my openness, if he is not then I am exactly where I was before these feelings were written.

Muriel chére, je vous remercie pour vos mots doux et tendres pensées. L'image est un "encore" que j'ai copié de mon DVD du film, je voulais l'utiliser pour illustrer le clignotement de miroirs afin d'obtenir l'attention de quelqu'un. S'il vous plaît copiez si vous le souhaitez.
baisers
