I wrote this because I still feel guilt for the way I treated my ex, and I can never tell him what I wanted to say.

For the Love of You
For the love of you I gave up my life,
For the love of you I called you the light,
For the love of you I poured out my soul,
For the love of you I gave you my heart to hold,
For the love of you I abandoned all else,
For the love of you I lost my own self,
For the love of you I gave you my body,
For the love of you I surrendered all of me,
For the love of you I endured pain beyond my reckoning,
For the love of you I did all at your beckoning,
For the love of you I suffered through morning sickness,
For the love of you I ignored your wickedness,
For the love of you I cried alone so you would feel no shame,
For the love of you alone I endured the pain,
For the love of you I struggled to give life,
For the love of you, oh God, how I tried,
For the love of you I let you go,
For the love of you I said no,
For the love of you I struggle to get through to tomorrow,
For the love of you I will never put away the sorrow,
For the love of you I will seek until I find,
For the love of you I will wait until the end of time.
