Why Do You Stay?

My heart aches as I see the pain in your eyes.  I will embrace you as the tears stream down your face.  Your laughter once carried the song of a careless bird. Why have you allowed him to strip you to the core?

You tell me that he will change and you have decided to wait.

Love does not make you wait for what you deserve.

  1. I am reminded of a line in a Jenny Lewis song.. “You are what you love and not what loves you back”. Unless this love is a celebration of that principal, I agree, tell him/or her not to wait.
