You deserved to see more sunsets and stars.
You should have gotten more I love yous,
I am sorry for the screams.
You are beautiful.
You did not deserve all the hate I gave you,
For over working.
I have not thanked you enough
For all the steps you continued to take.
I hope you like the new moisturizers.
I am sorry for all the meals I skipped.
For all the times I made you feel,
Like you were the least significant part of me.
I should have listened to your wails.
I promise to give you more shelter.
I am sorry,
For all the times,
And all the ways,
I broke and tore you,
Just so you could accompany,
I don’t know how you keep beating.
Don’t know how you keep loving,
Despite being flung to rock bottom,
I never meant the times,
I wished you would cease to feel.
I have tried to stop you,
I have tried to spite you,
I don’t want to try anymore.
You are all the brave I have,
You are all the selfless I am,
And you are so full of forgiveness,
You’ve even decided to forgive me,
For all times I tried to drown my own being.
I don’t know what I ever did,
To deserve a warrior,
