For four years, I have loved you. Secretly
Stealing glances at your lovely smile. Four
Years have I had my heart pounding like the rain.
Secretly wishing you were mine and
Secretly planning my way to your heart.
Every night, I prayed to God you would fall
In love with me. Or at the very least,
Look my way. Every night, I recite the
Speech I put together, confessing my
Hidden feelings to you. And every night,
I wonder why I couldn't find the words
As I stood near you. After those four years,
I moved thousands of miles away, heartbroken
To never see you again and even
More heartbroken to know you'll never know.
I indulged myself in the waters. The
waves slowly washed my feelings away, but
Never completely. Then, I fell in love.
Though she was not perfect, I always hoped
she was the one. I soon realized she
did not deserve what I gave her. And your
Image runs through my mind, lingering behind
Every thought. The truth is, she was never
The one. It was you all along. You became
The air I breathe and my new hope for love.
