Letter From You To Me


I'm sorry if I ever hurt you.


If you love someone,
you will surely cause them pain;
that's the truth of the matter.


No one ever showed me
how to love someone,
so forgive me
if it's hard for me
to show you.


I am trying,
I promise.
In my own way.


I just don't know
how to be affectionate;

I know how to hug you tenderly
because no one hugged me.


I value you
even though I never said so.


I brag about you
to everyone I meet
even though I never praise you


I'm proud of you,
more than I ever express.


I love you,
more than you can ever imagine.
