I came to think,
that you were never there.
That you didn’t give a damn,
and didn’t really care.

There were moments when the light would blink,
at the end of that dark tunnel.
When the clarity would sink in,
and I’d let go of that inner struggle.

I guess I always knew,
about what you were trying to tell me.
But the darkness, at times,
kept me from being able to see.

It finally dawned on me,
that you never really left my side.
That you’ve been around.
watching and waiting for the right time.

I don’t know why it took me so long,
to understand.
But all things happen for a reason, I think,
and I just ask that you forgive my previous rants.

I never meant to offend you,
and will try to make amends.
Waiting for that moment when we can come face to face.
Forever grateful that at least we’re still friends.
