I never got to see you,
the way that I wanted to,
to see your face,
every day,
all of the time,
in every way,
in every place.

And I never got to see you,
the way that I needed to,
to see your smile,
every sparkle
all of you mine
on every journey
on every mile.

But I did get to see you,
see you from afar,
the way that you wanted to,
wanted to be seen,
every where I go,
every breath that I breathe,
just as you are.

That’s the way that I love you,
love you though we’re apart,
the way that you deserve,
deserve to be loved,
with every beat,
with every pause
with all of my heart.
