Self Respect

I placed my treasures at your feet
I gave you all my songs so sweet

Before my own I placed your need
"All for you..." my daily creed

My self worth in  your reflection
The biggest fear .. your rejection

Always expecting your rebuff
Knowing what  I had was not enough

Yes,  you turned and walked away
I always knew you wouldn't stay

A little pride at last I found
I turned away without a sound........

Turning away is the right thing to do when your needs aren't being met, but I sure do know how hard it is to do that, LNC. And James has offered to cook any fish we catch (or toss). Love, Carolyn

This leaves a sad feeling of loss, so often seen in relationships gone wrong. Well done, Barbara.
