I said I didn’t love you
And I believed it was true
Then you spoke to me again
And it all came back anew

You just came to say goodbye
And it grew more and more
We talked more this night
Than we ever have before

You just weren’t worth loving
That’s what everyone would say
And I finally believed them
Until this fateful day

I worked so hard to forget
The way that I loved you
But you can’t forget something
That’s so real and true

But the love is different now
All I want to see
Is someone being good to you
Although it isn’t me

My love isn’t selfish
Nor is it unkind
It’s controlled from my heart
Instead from my mind

And now you are leaving
To go back to your home
You’re leaving so soon
Leaving me... alone

That night, I felt something
That I didn’t want to feel
I didn’t want to believe
Despite it all...

I love you still

I commented on this in the other forum.
It is such a touching poem -- love that
goes way past generousity

This is really sweet, a love that goes way past generosity and goes to unselfishness complete. *vote*!!!
