I Still Love You
Hello young man,
How are you this fine day?
Have you made any new friends?
Has life gone according to plan?
Perhaps you have said 'I love you,'
To the maiden you chose to wed.
I've never heard you say this to me,
But I'll say it, 'I still love you.'
With me, you've been quite curt,
You have never had any regrets.
You have never told me you were sorry
Even though, I am very hurt.
As I sit here on the rug,
I remember our youth.
How every night just before bed,
We never shared a hug.
When I was harmed I would yelp,
After I would wait for you.
You never cared enough to come
You never offered me any help.
Outside you would bound,
Playing with your wooden swords.
You never offered to play with me,
All you did was push me around.
Because of you I built this wall in my head,
This defense has been there for many years.
I don't know how to take it down
So at night I cry as I lay in bed.
You taught me how to cheat,
'Twas a habit, hard to break.
The habit you could never end,
Was the frequency with me you beat.
Curses, insults, and put-downs you'd yell,
Like tiny daggers piercing my heart.
No wonder I'm unsure,
You made my life a living hell.
You never once told me 'I love you.'
I wonder if you truly do,
But you know what, Big Brother?
Despite all this and all that you have done,
I still love you.
