Finally


As the years quickly passed
You and I both grew up
We slowly drifted apart
I never told you back then
But years ago you stole my heart

I never told you how I felt
Or just how much I cared
But I realized that I loved you
The day you weren’t there

Your mother said, you went off to school
But you never said, goodbye
Maybe that’s a good thing
When you left, I probably would have cried

But here we are now so many years behind us
I look at you and still feel the same
I can’t help but think how our lives would have been
If you and I hadn’t played those silly games

I know I should have told you
What I felt inside
I should have let my love show
But instead I let it hide

You look at me and call me a fool
I ask, what do you mean
She replied that I came back
To fulfill a life long dream

She said, years ago, I loved you so
But I couldn’t let my love show
She said, I thought if I went away
My love for you would never grow

But it seems the longer I stayed away
My love for you did in fact grow
So I came back to tell you
Because I thought you should know

So now I’m here and I want you
I won’t lose you a second time
We stood there looking at each other
In the distance the church bells chimed

Hand in hand we walked away
Finishing something that started years ago
I’ll hold on to her forever
I’ll never let her love go
