looking ahead

he will never see

the way she looked at him

nor will he glimpse

the light that dimmed

when hope did too

she could not see

the way he loved her

and she could not admit

she wants it to be

them, but it's too late

he will never know

that she would

drop

it all in a heartbeat

just for him

tell her, please

that you feel as she does

and perhaps that would ease

your pain and her pain

and all that will not cease

he'll never know

that she loved him, too

not when he's put someone else

in her place

watch her heart

drop

as she realises she

missed her chance.
