I wish you could see what you mean to me
I wish you could see what my heart has given
I wish you could see how I’d make you feel
I wish you could see the queen you would be
I knew you better than anyone else
All your dreams you shared fully with me
All your fears you couldn’t hide from my view
All your secrets you confided only with me
I saw you blossom into a new woman
I saw you change right before my eyes
Your highs and your lows I helped you get through
I saw in you what you couldn’t see
I knew your pains because they once were mine
I knew your soul better than you knew yourself
For I saw in you what you couldn’t believe
I saw the goddess I knew that you were
I knew how to make you feel special
I knew how to avoid your sensitive spots
I knew how to help you take risks
I knew how to bring out the goddess in you
No one knew how to love you like me
No one made you feel safe like I did
No one could be the haven for your soul
No one withstood your ebbs and your flows
I still loved you when you ran and hid
I could see right through the charade you put up
I waited and waited and anchored you up
I made you laugh like nobody could
I knew your words before you could say them
I could make you happy or sad at the drop of a hat
I could guide your anger, excitement, and fear
I could embrace your quirky emotions
After all that, couldn’t you see?
Couldn’t you see what I’d offer you?
Couldn’t you see how I made you feel?
Couldn’t you see who you were around me?
Why’d you give your heart to another
When your whole soul you shared with me?
Why’d you give your lips to someone
Who couldn’t see what I saw in you?
How could you surrender to a man
Who couldn’t blossom your wild energy?
How could you feel safe with him
Who couldn’t see the goddess in you?
My heart is broken for what might have been
I thought you could see what I could see
I’m sorry I couldn’t help you to see
The goddess you’d be if in my arms you were
