So far from you

I've been looking at you for years
I've been admiring you for times and times, again
I've been loving you without an end
But I've been afraid to let you know.

I saw you come to life with me
I was close to you in the craddle
I saw you grow within my arms
Then creep and walk away
And I loved you so much
And I'll love you ever, forever.
