What is it that makes you so sure?
That stops you from thinking twice
How can you possibly know?
If what you wish for is truly right
You choose to admire from a distance
Instead of moving two steps ahead
And silently walk away
Leaving everything unsaid
Yet you speak a thousand words,
When his smile is captured by your eyes
Making them brighten up
Or even a bit misty sometimes
How can you still think of the future?
When all that’s around you is about to change?
What makes you never let go of the belief?
That this one thing will always be the same
What if he never sees you
Because of all those that he is surrounded by?
Or forgets that you stand a mile apart
Waiting for the right time?
How long can you keep standing?
Not knowing if it will ever be true
“As long as it takes”, she said
“Until he flies as high as he wants to”
“Soars across the deep blue sky,
Shoots for the moon and lands somewhere among the stars,
And when he does,
I’ll still be here, waiting
Even if its somewhere far”
“Because it isn’t really about getting,
More about just letting go
Being grateful for having the chance to love
Staying where you are and watching it grow…”
And she ended with those words,
And so, did the questions in my mind
Turning away, I vowed to make the same promise to myself
To give it my all,
Leaving everything else behind….
