Daring To Wish

Suddenly I see it,
For what it really is,
And suddenly I notice,
That time has gone amiss.

An age of recognition,
Is reflected before me,
And I see in my eyes,
A sadness that’s torn me.

A moment of weakness,
That opened my heart,
To a realisation that,
Life is played in parts.

Stealing a secret,
Daring to wish,
All lost on me,
Until we shared that last kiss.

Now guilt mixed with fear,
Have consumed my day,
But try as I might,
I can’t stay away.

Forgive me, forget me,
Leave me standing here,
But know in your heart,
My love for you is clear.

Deny it, defy it,
Turn and walk away,
I will wait a lifetime
For in my heart you’ll stay.
