I've Been Waiting For You

I've been waiting for you.
To see through and undo,
My attitude of protection kept.
An attitude for someone special,
With an ability to see...
There is only one key they need,
To unlock my heart to know from the start...
My happiness to share,
Isn't difficult to get.
Nor is it freely given to leave disrespected.

I've been waiting for you,
To first offer your respect.
A respect never to neglect.
Or perceive me to be,
A game played to compete.
With a kept belief you can take easily,
My peace of mind...
That has taken me time to earn.
And immediately,
You have made this known.
