I May Never.....



I may never understand why you pushed me away,
when you are in a place where you need a friend to be there.

I may never understand why you never felt you could fully love me, when I was already trying to fully love you.

I may never understand why walls up to block me out, when I was working so hard to break down those walls.

I may never understand why you wouldn't take my hand, when all I desperately needed was to feel you there.

I may never understand why you needed the attention and acceptance of others, when all that I wanted from you was attention and acceptance.

I may never understand why you wouldn't show me your soul, when I was already bearing my soul to you.

I may never understand why you thought you had to block me from everything in your life, when all I wanted you to was be a part of mine.

I may never understand why I was never good enough for you, when all I wanted to do was prove that I was.

I may never understand how you wouldn't want to speak and scream, when all I wanted to do was listen.

I may never understand why you couldn't forgive me, when all I already is blame myself.

I may never understand why you wouldn't believe in me, when all I want to do is believe.

I may never understand the way you see yourself for as beautiful as you are, when all I saw was what we could have been.

I may never understand why you didn't tell me when you was hurting or lonely, when all I wanted to do is take away the pain.

I may never understand why you didn't want to be held and comforted, when all I wanted to do was hold you.

I may never understand why you thought you had to turn and walk away, when all I want to do is run and catch you.

I may never understand why you was taken away from me, when all I ever wanted was for you to be here.
