I go unnoticed

A friend in the shadows

A helpless soul pulling myself

Along by your side

Hovering embers

Defective and burnt

Sorrow consuming

The recesses of my heart

You whisper your help

Advice and concerns

Hand me chocolates and flowers

Wear your heart on your sleeve

Sit me down every evening

And offer your ears

Embracing me ever so lightly

In your welcoming arms

And all the time I am here

As you listen, my friend

I go unnoticed

As the lover I am

(For somebody who doesn't seem to realise what is right in front of him.)
