                    I adored you

I loved you near and afar.

I loved your soft voice and beautiful face.

I stood near you and we held hands and shared drink.

We traveled California One and I watched your dance

on the quiet beaches.

We found private places where you laid bare and free.

I could see a woman I beloved in silence .

But my need for you.

You never felt.

Because I didn’t show you, who I was

All I wanted was you,

Near but far away.

Today I’m alone without you.

And you,

so far away from me.

Today my only  wish,

is that I told you I adored you.
