If every sad song in every heart broken world were sung

in heartrending unison

It would still not match the pain that flits across your face

when you are hurting.



I wrote you a song

Isn’t that what lovers do?

I forgot to pay the bills

I didn’t fill gas in the car.

I ridiculed you in front of your friends

I stayed late at the office all week

I danced with my ex girlfriend at the club

I made plans with my friends on our anniversary

I lost my temper more than once today

But I bought you flowers didn’t I?

Isn’t that what lovers do?
