Perfect Isn't Enough
I'm so sorry
I never meant to hurt your feelings.
I tried and tried.
I tried to tell you so many times.
But always waiting for me was a smile.
Breakfast in bed, at the right times.
Always there, to kiss me good night.
Never faulting, ever the gentleman.
Your company, always a delight.
The host with the treats,
The guest with the gift.
You were always happy,
The nice guy.
I didn't want to take that away.
I didn't want to make you cry.
How do I tell you I don't love you anymore?
You remember the dates,
You always put me first.
You do everything right.
So, How do I tell you that 'perfect' isn't making me happy?
That 'Mr. Right' isn't enough for me.
It hurt every single day.
I just didn't know what to say.
I never meant for you to find out like this.
I know I messed up,
Please, forgive me!
