Longing

Today I saw you from a distance,
I smiled and turned away.
It hurt for me to do so,
It hurts so everyday.

Yesterday you asked a question,
I thought would lead to more,
But I was wrong, you see,
Like so many times before.

Often I welcome the laughter,
I hear from far away.
To know that you are happy,
Brightens up my day.

But once in awhile in sorrow,
I turn to days gone by.
Recollections of the memories,
Sometimes makes me cry.

Now and then I pretend you are here...
As precious dreams come true.
Even if it never happens,
I won't ever forget you...
