Lyric/Poetry – A Love Discovered

There was a man and a woman,
Friends with wild dreams in a small town.
She was smart and beautiful;
He was honest and hard-working,
With a shy streak to match.

She saw him laugh
And be the charm of everyone’s life.
But she didn’t know the half
Because she never saw the longing eyes
Or the silent tears that he held inside.

He said,

I am right here
Just waiting for you, my Dear.
I see you dancing with this and that one.
I know that I could love you good and love you right
You are the one that I hold dear.
So, if you see me
I am standing right here.

Always there for each other
They were as close as could be.
Someone to talk to and a shoulder to cry upon,
It seemed like a story from long ago.
Some nights he lies awake dreaming and thinking

I am right here
Just waiting for you, my Dear.
I see you dancing with this and that one.
I know that I could love you good and love you right
You are the one that I hold dear.
So, if you see me
I am standing right here.

The key is still in the lock,
It just needs someone to dare to enter and open.
And there they may find what one has been hoping;
A love, a friendship forever unlocked and discovered
By two hearts that saw each other.
