4 letter word


because I love you I want nothing but the best for you.

I want to see you shine and accomplish the world.

I want you to be happy and not the type of happy that is portrayed in the media.

The type of happy that everyone dreams about. 


 Love, because I love you and want this best for you,

I put my wants and needs aside for yours.

Because I love you I forgot what it is to love myself. 

I've convinced myself that loving me is selfish.

When really you're the one who is selfish

for not telling me it is okay to love ME.
