I See You From Afar


I see you from afar:

Yesterday

You smile to me

A stranger to you.

Patience and grace -

It shines through.

But I walk away,

Afraid to say

That I love you.

I see you from afar:

Today

I come to you

But you walk away,

Too busy to stay.

All I want to say

Is 'I love you';

And I shade my tears

As I walk away.

I see you from afar:

Tomorrow

But you don't know me

I am the stranger,

I am the fool,

Incapable to show

His love for you.

But I am contented

To know you are there.
