Would You For Me?

Because I love you

I like making you smile

But

I let you laugh at my expense.

 

Because I love you

I want you to be happy

But

I never tell you when I’m not.

 

Because I love you

I want to support you

But

I don’t speak up when I disagree.

 

Because I love you

I am always there for you

But

I let you take advantage of me.

 

Because I love you

I want to know about your day

But

You don’t ask for mine.

 

Because I love you

I trust in your promises

But

I pretend I’m not hurt when they’re broken.

 

Because I love you

I want to help you with your problems

But

I mask my pain for yours.

 

Because I love you

I have changed

But

I don’t know who I am anymore.
