All this time I failed to see,

There is no place for a man like me;

My hopes and dreams will never be,

A shadowman is my destiny.

My late night thoughts are sad but true,

What made me think I had a chance with you;

You deserved much better than this man you knew,

The best I could offer had little value.

Each day I faced the hardest fact,

That loving me was just an act;

A chambered heart is not exact,

But entry fails when love is lacked.

A borrowed tear to say goodbye,

Words that leapt between truth and lies;

I failed to hear your nightly cries,

Or notice your face with your hooded eyes.

My heart you held for as long as you could,

As it turned out much more than you should;

You pretended our love but apart you stood,

I know now that you never would.

You left me empty and took my light,

Where once I loved and burned so bright;

I’m now a shadow and hide from sight,

And pray the days become the night.

In my world I heard the flowers grow,

Danced with you in moonlight glow;

Held your hand and whispered low,

I wonder now how I didn’t know.

Now you’re gone forever free,

Just like it was always destined to be;

My world has changed and now I see,

There is no place for a man like me.
