Yours From a Distance

I have loved you faithfully though I tried to forget you.

There has never been another.

Your friendship has meant everything to me:

My hopes, my dreams, my courage,

My lifetime of memories given meaning.

They all point to you.


I can’t even imagine my life without you there,

A shadow though you seem to be.

The living shadow in the back of my mind

That I am always reaching for,

That I am always waiting for.

You have become a hero to me.


And I have fallen in love with all your good intentions,

Beautiful and misunderstood.

As long as I live and I love you correctly

I would be shamelessly yours.

And until the blessed time comes,

I will remain silently yours from a distance.
