If I promised you I’d try…

Would that be enough?

Or would you just sigh in disappointment,

Look down in disgust?

 

If I lied to myself for you to be happy…

Would you actually believe it?

Because I’d do anything,

Anything to make you smile.

 

If I was unhappy all my life…

Would you pretend to not see?

It would be cruel for you to do,

But I can’t complain if it helps you stay sane.

 

Is there no way for me to be happy without sacrificing your happiness?

Can I not find a way to balance it out?

Because the pain of being unsure is ripping me up,

Twisting my emotions to the point of numbness.

I love you, truly I do,

But what about me?

Do I not deserve happiness,

Do I not deserve a pain free feeling?

I made sacrifices that you’ll never know bout,

Can you just do it for me,

Just this one time?
