Weird, the first time I uploaded this the font was so small it wasn't even readable, but hopefully now I've fixed it. Lol.

Do you want me to write a poem for you?
Is that what you want?
Well here I am again,
And these are my words:
You found me in my darkest hours,
And brought me to life again.
You were always there,
And made me feel safe again.
You took the pain away.
I saw all I’d ever wanted in your eyes.
But when I started falling backwards,
You slipped away.
I could see what was happening.
You were afraid of being dragged down with me.
So I back away.
I never wanted to hurt you,
But it seemed my efforts to keep you near me,
And to keep from hurting you,
Did just that.
You ran the other direction,
Just like before.
I cry for you,
Do you even remember to think of me?
You’re happier without me…
I only ever held you back,
Just like I did to everyone else.
I expected too much from one person.
For a while you made me feel,
Like you’d stay by me to protect me,
While I fought my way through this.
But I never should have thought,
That anyone could do that much.
I envy you in every way.
You have everything I could ever wish for.
I don’t ever want to see you fall,
The way I did.
Don’t take the things you have for granted,
Because they’ll disappear.
And only then you’ll realize,
How much you appreciated them.
So take care of what you have now,
Before it goes away.
I wanted to protect you,
And stay by your side.
But I wasn’t strong enough.
You don’t want me there,
And I understand.
I’ll back away,
So I won’t bother you anymore.
I’ll let you come to me from now on,
So you’ll only have to talk to me,
As much as you want to.
I know you don’t care much for me anymore,
But I’ll always be there.
And even if it seems your all alone,
And there’s no one there to help you,
Just turn around and look behind you,
And you’ll see I was there all along.
Watching your back.
They say if you love something,
Let it go.
So I’ll let you go,
To keep you safe from me.
I don’t ever want to hurt you again…
You mean everything to me,
But if you’re happier without me,
Then I will do nothing to stop you from leaving.
I’d do anything,
To have things back to the way they were.
But if that’s not what you want…
Then I’ll have to let you go.
I love you and would do anything for you,
But I just want you to be happy.
Would you want to try again?
Would you give me the chance?
Would you make the effort?
You said always and forever,
…but were those just empty words?
I trust you,
And I love you,
But maybe you’re better off without me.
But what do you really think…?
