Why did I?

I was the one
who always loved you
the one who often placed
a tulip petal in your book
the one who touched
the bottom of your heart
just kept on waiting till a time
to tell you of my love
but till that moment
you were gone away with someone else
you were happy with someone else
wonder why did I wait so long
Why did I?
Why did I choose not to speak?
Why did I choose not to confess?
was it coz it was destined for us not to be one?
at least I saved my self respect
loneliness once again defeated happiness

I thought about you with every breath I took
my every moment, everyday was just centered around you
just filled with thoughts of you
many times hid away when you
captured me looking at you
were you a butterfly that flew around me
and then flew away to somewhere new
when I opened my hands to let you in
by then the time ran out
wonder why did I wait so long
Why did I?
Why did I choose not to speak?
Why did I choose not to confess?
was it coz it was destined for us not to be one?
at least I saved my self respect
loneliness once again defeated happiness
