The Way I Do

How bittersweet it is,
To love the way I do.
Unconditional, unwavering,
Deep as the ocean blue.

To forgive as often as you breathe,
Because empathy comes naturally to you.
But to give and give and give,
And never have it returned to you.

I always see beyond the surface,
But I wanted to be seen too.
As much as I wanted to write,
I wanted to be written about too.

They always come back for more,
Because they find peace in you.
But the more you give out,
The less you have for you.

But I’ll find strength to do it again,
Because maybe this time it’ll be true.
Oh, how bittersweet it is,
To love the way I do.
