It's hard

by Precious Velasco

It's hard...
Saying 'no' when I mean 'yes'
Coz maybe you don't care
For the things I wanna share.

It's hard...
Avoiding to say 'I love you '
Coz tho I feel like telling
Seems you've no time listening.

It's hard...
Faking a smile when I meant to cry
Coz maybe tears will irritate you
And increase your burdens too.

It's hard...
To get mad at you even once
Coz you gave me love that's far greater
Than the lapses I could ever remember.

A selfless write with the kind of sentiment that can only spring from love and respect. However, my guess is that if they love you in return, they will have time to listen and want to dry your tears.

Take care,

Thank you, Ben. Guess you've felt the emotion the poem wants to express.
