True Feelings

Ever had that thought you were meant for me? I was meant for you?

I did, I saw the clues but I paid no attention, why? Is the sky blue? “This could have been us”

when I am down you were my ladder

when I hid in the shadows, you brought me to the open

now I am here hoping you will hear these words unspoken

without regrets, without neglect. I admit
