It doesn’t show, but you should know…
For all the hateful things that i say
And the promises that i break.
For all the lashings that you take
Some times i fear i should have stayed away.
And i know it’s not ok
To take and take and take.
And for all the smiles you had to fake.
For every damn mistake.
For every silence that i break
For all the biting comments you shake.
I fear i should have stayed away.
For every time i curse your name
For all tunes i write in vain.
For all of the sorrow and the shame
The times i didn’t feel the same.
For every time i didn’t keep pace
For all tears that don’t reach your face.
For pushing you away
And the things that i never say.
Thank you for putting up with all of it
My manic depressive bullshit.
And though i don’t know why
With my moods changing all the time.
I’m glad you stayed
And keep me from drifting away.
Though it doesn’t show on my face
I’m thankful every single day.
