Why can’t I?

Posted: October 10, 2012 by josephcolley in JosephC

You tell me you’re happy.
You say everything’s fine..
But when I look into your eyes,
I can tell you want to die.

You know I’m here for you!
I tell you night and day.
I’m just a shoulder for you to cry on,
Yet you want to keep me dry.

I Want you ‘truly’ happy
And you said “that’s what you make me”
..but then I look into thoseĀ luscious green eyes..
Why can’t they smile too?

I know your world’s not perfect.
And before, Neither was mine
However YOU made my life perfect..
Why can’t I do that too?
