Took a while for me to see

How much you really meant to me

I could not tell you straight away

That I was loving you more each day

You captivated my soul

And yet you didn’t hear my call

Deaf is, as lovers are blind

As words unwritten can be so unkind

You were here, but I never came to mind

I thought you’d never leave me behind

Fool was I to notice not

I should have taken my shot

It was a chance that I had missed

And now to goodbye you’ve kissed

You tried to tell me but I wouldn’t listen

Here I am now, it’s you I’m missing

You loved me then but not anymore

I love you now, when it should have been before
