Why focus on things that bring distance between us?
I pass by you daily
Do I see – acknowledge – and celebrate you?
Do I judge what you are – who you see – and how you look?
Our lives have kept us apart
My judgment has kept us apart
I am older and wiser now
I see you so rarely
I wish to see you more
I long to share a moment with you
If only to share a smile – or word of advice
Or maybe a tear for all of the time and
Pain that has passed
I once passed you by with only a frown and a scorn
As I judged what you were
Who you saw – and
How you looked
If only I had known what is so clear to me now
All of those years since past
Can you let me in now?
