I'm Standing Here

" I'm Standing Here "

I should have given her all of me
anything less just can not do
not much experience with romance
I've only been close with a few.

I should have given her all or nothing
just halfway never got me there
it started out good just as it should
but in the end I'm Standing Here.

I was doing nice things that lovers do
the candy and flowers and all that jive
I kept it strong and faithful and so true
tried everything to keep this alive.

Making all my moves with her in mind
love notes, emails, and sometimes text
only half of my heart and half my life
thinking ahead wondering whats next.

I kept no secrets held from her
so many things that I should have said
trying to keep the feeling like brand new
both out in public and in our bed.

I chased her with all of my thoughts
she was the apple of my eye
I adored her dearly and her love I sought
I never hurt her nor made her cry.

My tear filled eyes have left me standing
with a heavy heart so full of fear
she is slowly drifting towards another
I am loosing my precious dear. 

I should have given her all of me
just halfway never got me there
she found another that gives his all
and in the end, I'm Standing Here...

    We all live and learn, love and learn. Sorry for your heartache. A beautifully expressed poem. I am a believer that things happen for a reason, so...perhaps this is just a natural step that had to be taken before meeting your forever love. Good luck! Love, Shar
