Why not me?

Longing to hold you close
Wishing every minute
you were by my side
Closing my eyes.

Your lips touch mine
My body tingles with excitement
Listening to you
Talk about others.

Wishing it was me
You wanted
Feeling the tears
Swell up in my eyes
As they break free

Sliding down my face
Why...I ask
Why not me?

Don't I make you
Smile, laugh?
Don't you enjoy my company?
Why not me?

Why can't you see me when I'm standing in front of you?
Don't I make you feel safe
Wrapped in my arms
Can you just tell me
Tell me why
I'm not the one
