I wasn’t selfish in the way I loved you…

I wasn’t selfish in the way I loved you…

I gave up everything for you….

My life…

My self….

My joy….

My happiness….

My peace….

Because I loved you….

You were everything to me.

Everything.

And when I lost you….

I wasn’t okay.

I wasn’t okay.

Along the road to healing and forgiveness….

Past the gates of grief….

I had to love me too.

And losing all of me….

Led me back to a place where I could begin to love myself.

The parts of me that were abandoned and left alone….

And I still loved you…

I still wish you well.

But in all the ways I lived….

I wasn’t selfish in the ways I loved you….
