LOVE
 

i love you,
not only for what you are,
but for what i am
when I am with you.

i love you,
not only for what
you have made of yourself,
but for what
you are making of me.

i love you,
for the part of me
that you bring out;
i love you
for putting your hand
into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
all the foolish, weak things
that you can't help
dimly seeing there,
and for drawing out
into the light
all the beautiful belongings
that no one else had looked
quite far enough to find.

i love you because you
are helping me to
make of the lumber
of my life.

not a tavern
but a temple;
out of the works
of my every day
not to reproach but a song.

i love you because
you have done more
than any creed
could have done
to make me good,
and more than any
fate could have done
to make me happy.

you have done it
without a touch
without a word
without a sign.
you have done it
by being yourself-
perhaps that is what
being a friend means
after all.

 Why Do You Choose To Hurt Me?

Why do you choose to hurt me?
Where did i go wrong?
I'm sorry that I couldn't be what you wanted..
I wouldn't give you the control  that you desired.
Now you're with someone else, but still telling me that I'm the one you love
Don't you see the tears I've cried and the heartache that is killing me?
All of these feelings are true and come from the depths of my soul, you see.
Can't you make up your mind and leave or the other behind?
I don't understand. I've been the one that you've run to in your times of need.
I was there when you needed a shoulder.
All the love that I've given hasn't been enough.
I've given you more love then I could ever give to any other;
and this is what you give me in return.
Why do you choose to hurt me?
The pain is digging it's path through my heart.
Do you even care?
Do  you care about the night's when I have cried myself to sleep?
Or when I've thought of giving myself  into the river deep?
Does it matter?
Does my heartache matter to you?
Why do you choose to hurt me?
I can't bring myself to understand.
Maybe one day you'll realize what you had.
Then you'll come back wanting again. but sorry
you'll never have the chance.
 



 
 

Please Love Me Again

You gave me love
You gave me life
I'll never know how much you sacrificed

I'm sorry that I let you down
I didn't mean to be the talk of the town

I'm sorry I hurt you
But what was I to do
I was sick and tired of hiding everything from you

If only I knew how things would have been
I could have kept everything to myself

I guess we all live and learn
Hoping and praying for better days to come.

I'm sorry I'm not everything you wanted me to be
Why can't  you just love me for me
Am I asking too much

I love you with all my heart
but know I am torn into
What am I to do

When I told you I love you
I was very sincere

All I want to know is how
can I make things right
Let me know how and I'll try
I'm tried of hurting
I'm ready to move on
Things have got to get better
Or I'll be gone.

I said it before I'll and I will say it
again I'm sorry for what I've done
so Please love me again
