More Of My Time To Give

One day you will regret,
You disrespected my interests.
To remember I accepted your selfishness,
With a belief what I expressed...
Had been only on you addressed,
With no other interests from which to select.
Not true.
I was 'into' you with feelings felt.
And wanted you to know I could and had focus.

You were part of and not the sum total,
Of the love and affection I have here to share.
And with you now not being there,
Only gives my other interests...
More of my time to give they will get.
And I have no problem at all admitting this...
You 'were' missed.
But not enough to keep me sitting,
With you on my mind to reminisce.

There is a problem most folks have.
And that is the belief people like me,
Can be taken for granted.
