Crystal clear consolations


There was always comfort in his words
Both spoken and eloquently written
And she cherished every stolen moment
For with him she was quite smitten

There was crystal clear evidence
That he loved her with all his heart
And it seemed she had felt the very same way
From the first words he did impart

There was never a doubt in her mind
About any potential hidden motivations
For she could read between the lines
In all their semi-periodic conversations

And as the years shuffled along
She knew for certain he was the one
For a light shone so brightly in his eyes
Which caused her heart to come undone

Never had she been so sure
Of what love was and all it meant
Until that day he happened along
Falling into her life by pure accident

And even to this day
She still feels the very same
For once two souls align
A heart can easily be claimed

He hides his goodbyes in her hellos


He hides his goodbyes
In her hellos
Never revealing
What she already knows

And as the days continue
And the months turn to years
She blossoms for him
Increasing his fears

For he knows the cost
Of true love upon a soul
And if he loses her now
He’ll never feel whole

So he hides his feelings
As best he can
Hopeful that someday
She’ll understand
