Just so you'll know, I'll always care

Letting you go will be 
the hardest thing I'll 
ever have to do
I know this because 
just thinking about it, 
makes my heart fall 
slowly, silently yet 
freely to the floor
Only to break into 
small pieces I've yet 
figured out how to put 
back together again

It's quite selfless 
many would say, but 
I've got no shame in 
saying that I love you 
more than I'll probably 
love myself
No shame in saying 
that I'd gladly fall from 
the face of this earth 
to save you

Just so you'll see the 
sunrise then set, so 
you'll feel 
the rain fall upon your 
head during the next 
But most of all just so 
you'll know I'll always

    Sad and romantic. I hope you learn to love yourself as much as you love him. You will then be ready for a love that will blow your mind. You deserve it, give yourself a hug and realize you have your arms wrapped around a child of God. 7 rating on the poem. For your info 7 is the highest. When I came here I thought it was out of 10 *lol*
