I'm selfish.
I try to please myself
above others.


Please know that
and forgive when
I give into my humanness.


I think you are amazing
and you deserve the world
because of your giving nature. 


I hope I can be
everything you deserve;
I hope I give you
all that should be yours.


I will try
and I will fail often,
but I will not give up on us.
