relationship poem

I love you

I love you

Like the moon loves the stars.

I love you

Like bees love honey.

I love you

Like fish love the sea.

I love you

As much as I need air to breathe.

Now you’ve gone away

Not like before,

Waiting to come back another day.

You’re far away

Never to come back to me.

But you see,

I love you

Like the moon love the stars,

Like bees love honey,

Like the fish love the sea,

And as much as I need air to breathe

And no matter if you leave,

I’m lucky to have loved you

For you were the best I could ever see

The best I could ever need.

And I’ll always love you

Like the moon loves the stars,

Like bees love honey

Like the fish love the sea

And more than I need air to breathe.

No one will ever love you as much as me.

The Best I Could Be

I tried the best I could

To be the best I could

For even the worst of you

Just so you could be the best you could to me.

But the best I could wasn’t good enough

To make you the best you could be to me.

And even when I see the sun shining from your eyes

And flowers sprouting

With every step that rises from the dirt

I trail behind

Dragging weeds

Because that’s the best I can be.

A tiny weed

Scattered through your flowers

Because what you see of me

Is what I have come to be

And the best I will ever be

Is as great as you make me.

I see the best in you

But you don’t see the best in me

And therefore we can never be.

Even though this is the truth

I will stay and admire you

Until the weeds have eaten all your flowers away

And you ask me to leave.

But until then

I will be the best that I can be

For even the worst of you.
