All these years I've been a secret about which you couldn't know
That you've lived in my mind as a moment waiting to be shared
All these years as close friends so my Love wouldn't show

Down hundreds of days of platonic divertimento
You've kissed my cheek and played music, so blissfully unaware
All these years I've been a secret about which you couldn't know

I didn't need to be Loved, Loving you was just so
No jealousy or need, no tortured soul to be bared
All these years we've stayed friends so my Love wouldn't show

I thought of myself as a treasure waiting to be found although
It seems true treasure wasn't something about which you cared
All these years I've been a secret about which you couldn't know

In our duets you lead where I can always follow
In harmonic counterpoint as a synchronous pair
All these years we've stayed friends so my Love wouldn't show

Seeing you now with your children it is time to let go
And I have after all those precious hours we have shared
All these years I've been a secret about which you couldn't know
All these years we've stayed friends so my Love wouldn't show

Tommy Randell --- 30th August 2016
Platonic love can truly bring joy to the Pair and to those around them, even so being melancholy and yearning. It is Giving of an exceptional kind.
