What kind of man am I?

You ask this after all I’ve done…

I stood by your side, when I should have run…

I never judged, or held a grudge

I never condemned, because I loved…

I told you forever, you said the same…

It just did not mean the same to you

Please realize I’m not here to blame.

What kind of man am I?

I’m a loving father,

A passionate lover and best friend…

Someday you may discover, what you

lost, what you threw away

never to recover…

What kind of man am I?

If you see me as the man

You force me to become,

one that was desperate for

your love, acceptance,

And understanding…

I admit, I lost patience, and spoke

to others, when those others should

have been you, but you turned

 your back…you flew…

What kind of man am I?

I’m the kind of man

That is still waiting for you

And will always be here

I only see your beauty

Inside and out

I’m hoping you will see

What you turning away

Has done to me…

The one who held you in his arms

And kissed away your tears…

Please wake up my dear…
