I Hurt Too

I've tried to do all I can,

by being there for you.

But sometimes I feel, you want more,

than I am able to do.

It gets emotionally draining,

to take everyone’s else’s hurt.

Right to the point that I'm left feeling,

my needs are tossed in the dirt.

If I'm not there just when you call,

you take it so personally.

But I have problems in my life too,

and the needs of my family.

Now I'm far from saying "Goodbye,"

or that I no longer care.

But my friend you have to realize,

that I simply can't always be there.
