Love, unconditional.

If you turn your back to me
i will not turn mine, back to you
so that should you turn around
i will be there as long as there is breath

If you withdraw your affection from me
i will not return the hurt
will not cease to love you
just as i always have

If you forget everything that
my love has brought
and treat me as unwanted and reject me
i will still be around
hoping you will remember
hoping you will return
your affections

i will never withhold love
to make you do anything my way

i will never use
the power to love
to manipulate

My heart is breaking right now
i know how they feel now
Those people whose lovers reject them
My heart is breaking as i wonder
How can one forget or despise genuine love
given so selflessly
With nothing held back

i know now what it is like to feel rejected
To feel spurned
To feel little
As if nothing one did across years matters
As if the 142,350 hours together
mean nothing suddenly

My eyes dried up
Now my heart cries
It bleeds

Perhaps a day will come
When you will see again
Smile again with love
for me ...
i hope that day
Might still be
On this side
Of eternity

Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy, does not boast, is not proud. It does not dishonor others, is not self-seeking, not easily angered, keeps no record of wrongs.
