Eyes that did not see you,
Hearts that did not know you,
Voices that never heard you,
Kindness that never touched them,
Reversing the sand in the hour glass, I feel immeasurable pain
for all the love you gave, but was never returned to you,
Sadness for all the generosity you extended over the years,
yet never found its way back to you.
How did they not see what I saw from the first day I laid eyes on you?
How could they miss how special, caring and loving you were?
How could they walk away from the most precious man?
When I am with you, the hour glass does not move forward nor backward,
suspended in timelessness, I feel your mother's presence through you, love her without even having met her, admire her, for she raised you to be the person you are today.
All I want to extend to you is payment for the deeds of your past,
love and care for you with all my heart and soul,
dry your tears when you are sad, rub your stomach when you laugh too hard, caress your hair when you fall to sleep and let my eyes see you when they wake up.
I shall never take for granted the beauty you carry inside of you, that shines through and through and has since you were born,
I guess some people felt blinded by you and thus cannot see?
I guess some people were hurt before and therefore never allowed their heart to feel you?
I guess some people received careless words and thus never heard you?
I shall not run from my past, let it slow me down, nor hold me back or close my heart, from the day I met you until my last, I shall always love you, and I know that you will continue to love others, without ever wanting anything back in return.
