For Jesse - Poem by Melissa Rodriguez

Your love
I took for granted
your smile
I took away

your heart
I held it in my hands
and put it on display
I never meant to hurt you
I did with such a lie

I thought I could live without you
Now in loneliness I cry
A lifetime to make it up to you
Is that too much to ask

I want to be your reality
not hide behind this mask
Please open your heart to me
Please let me back in

I promise to protect you
I'll be your best friend
I'll add sweetness to your day
And passion to your night

I will not give up on you
I wont go down without a fight
We were made for each other
Cut from the same mold

Please take my heart back
Don't let it grow cold
I will love you always Jess
I'll be there 'til the end

I will be your loving wife
I'll be your best friend
