The Canyon

I can't get to you

Not even very close

You have your mind on other things

Things that don't include me.

I try to get your attention

I do all that I can

But I don't say words

And you're just too busy to notice.

I'd like to tell you

But I'm just too shy

Why won't you just look at me

Like more than just a friend.

This gap between us is getting wider

Each day I seem to get farther away

I wish it would close up

So I could be close to you.

This canyon is depressing

I wish it wasn't here

Then I could be beside you

Until the very end.
