CON-SCIOUS EXPRESSIONS

Robert Phelyaw

You Did Not Even Look My Way!

I held you when you cried.
I believed you when you lied.
Yet you did not even look my way!

I walked beside you
Even when you went the wrong way
I whispered in your ear I am here
When you thought you were all alone
Yet you did not even look my way!

I ran to you when you screamed in the dark
I guarded you as you went through hell
Yet you did not even look my way!

I stood to fight as demons attacked you at night
I caught you when you stumbled
Yet you did not even look my way!

I took your hand when you reached out
I kissed the top of your head
When your heart was broken
Yet you did not even look my way!

I am here with my heart and soul in hand
I will always be here
And yet you do not even look my way!
