How They Could Fall For Me

Now I know how you could have fallen for me.
I’ve missed the chance as gravity’s done its dance.
Unknown was the method of picking fruit from a tree.
I should have known the time of a chance ripening.

If only my love for each of them would set them free.
For I have fallen for saviors freeing me of loneliness.	

Now, all I see is how you could have fell in love with me.
I was so unaware of your pain as I cried in vain.
Unknown were your sorrows for how life seemed to be.
I wish mine embrace were around you in thy time of wilting.

If only my love had guided me, you’d have felt more happy.
For you, my love is gratitude for all our memories.

Now what I realize is how you could be pushed to fall for me.
I was made aware of my flaws by words like claws.
Unknown was this love of mine for you, quiet as a tree.
I hope someday you can change in a time of your living.

If only this love of mine was as affective as being lost with me.
For us, my liking needs an adventure to bring us closer.

Now I know how you could have fallen further in love with me.
I was aware of losing you, when home was of my choosing.
Unknown was your goodbye being a first kiss for me.
I hold on to my love for you: for absence shall cause deepening.

If only my love had as easily as yours faded away.
For you, my feelings remain the same while in a veil of pain.

Now I can imagine how they could have fallen for me.
I would come to learn everything in which it’s all hiding. 
Unknown, your truths always were,
I hope someday I will succeed in romancing you.
