A glimpse

I saw him today, he looked really happy. I was hoping he’d sit with me, but he was with his friends. It’s frustrating to know that I could’ve been a friend too, had I only chose to smile more. Had I held a conversation more than “Hi” or “Hello”… Had I elaborated more on the “how are you’s”…
He’s happy, that much I know. He deserves it, God only knows how much he does. I envy him though, because he is amicable and well-liked. As I am just a simple shadow beneath his smiling sun.
I am but a wildflower in the midst of all these gorgeous boquets. Unnoticed, overshadowed, unadored. Yet all I need is a glimpse of his brightness. Just a glimpse and my shadowed clouds dissipate.
