Daily Prompt: Admire

I want to tell you that I admire you for your strength, honesty.

But, that means I have to stand in front of you and tell you all these things.

And my mouth is dry and my feet won’t move and so you walk by and I just let you be.

Another day, another hour, another moment lost.

My regrets of not saying anything is starting to eat up inside and yet here.

I write out the words and yet still I can’t say I admire you for your always kinds.

The way you’re  always so sweet to me all worth nothing if I seem so rude and thankful for you.

I admire you and only if these words could reach you, life would be so much better for me.

For your moment to shine would be so much appreciated by you.
