    You say
    I don’t smile anymore
    But what shall I smile for?
    You say
    I don’t talk to you anymore
    But what is there to say
    I’m giving you the friendship
    The one that you want, okay
    Biting my lip
    Not knowing what to say
    So what can I do to help your day?

    One_Love

    unconditional love is hard to give
    they'll turn the blame around and say it's something you did
    walking on thin ice and trying to please
    often leaves us hurt in pain and broke in disease
    still...
    an unusual warm feeling comes from being loved and giving it
    still...
    a tranquility is found inside of Love and inside of living it
    still...
    thru pain sometimes we gain
    though burdens leave us uncertain
    still thru pain sometimes we gain...

    (You just inspired this from me as I read your poem)
    Excellent depth of feeling here...Wonderful to see you :)
    Many Blessings

    one luv, I know the feeling, but sometimes you have to give them what they can handle, if you want to remain in their lives...it isn't fair...it just is.
