I stood at the window tonight
Watched how tenderly you held him
Each caress I felt as if my own
Then I knew my propose if life

Love
An elusive dream, a wish
Watching
What I do best

I see what you see in him
Handsome, intelligent and kind
I could be these things
But not this time around

Wanting
What I'll never have
Needing
To be held through the night

No one shall ever see
The scars I carry around
As I watch from the outside
At the one thing I crave

Touching
A basic human need
Caring
Soft and warm feelings

A heart grown cold from neglect
A soul as old as the stars
A healer of hearts and hurts
A watcher who sees all
A man alone for all time
My Purpose.

This is heartrending, and hauntingly sad.  Well written; it's a real tear-jerker.  Thank you for sharing.

Keep looking, my friend.

For everyone, there is a mate, and love waiting to be discovered!


Achingly beautiful!

Ouch...
I'm sorry.  Sometimes what we see, isn't always what is there.  I hope you find what you want.
