Why Can't He See Me?

I whispered thoughts in his direction
Did the wind forget to carry them
Didn't he notice my complexion
Flushed with loving thoughts of him

Does he even know I'm here
Watching him from right behind
Is his heart so cold that he
Would just pretend that he is blind

Does he really know I love him
Should I tell him face to face
No, I think I ought to whisper
Perhaps another time and place

Why doesn't he look at me
Would he turn away out of fear
So close that I could touch his hand
Why can't he see me standing here

If he could only know how much
I long to feel his loving touch
Perhaps he'd turn to look at me
Perhaps he'd kiss me tenderly

Elizabeth, my friend -
But another lovely stroke
from your poetic pen
that sets my heart remembering.

Elizabeth,
He dwells a different dimension
But where it is I cannot mention.
I'm sure he tries in his own way.
But commitments, well what can I say? *L*

Very touching Liz, I loved it, thanks for sharing. I think someone needs the number of a good eye doctor.
