Her

As I gaze upon you from a distance,
I notice certain attributes,
such as the pureness in you laughter
and the softness in your eyes.

As I gaze upon you from a distance,
I wish that you only knew
the great and horrid secret
that I have a crush on you...

As I gaze upon you from a distance,
I realize my one true wish;
to go right up to you stunning face
and to lay a gentle kiss.

As I gaze upon you from a distance,
I then see another guy.
He's hugging you everlastingly;
I've been shot down from the sky.

As I gaze upon you from a distance,
there are tears in my eyes.
I run from my hiding place
to spot a site to cry.

As I think of you at a distance,
I think about your love
and about my horrid secret
that will never come into existence.
