Tears fell from my eyes today,
emotion I could no longer hold,
for I came across your pictures,
and a past story came to unfold.
In a past I held thoughts of beauty,
but courage was not mine to speak,
for I feared I would be laughed at,
and others would see me as weak.
From the years that passed between,
time never really kept us connected,
but my heart always new the truth,
it was a friendship I so neglected.
Forgive me in all my known failures,
you have always been in my heart,
and I think you are so very beautiful,
and wish the connection to re-start.
My heart can not take this pain,
my words are what I offer, give,
to ask our hearts to re-connect,
and let our friendship again live.
