Gracious - Poem by Javier Falcon

The person who has always been there for you,
yet you push her aside like a chew toy,
you should show her that you actually love her.

She who has been with you through thick and thin,
being faithful to your decisions all this time.
The person who you cast away and distrust.

She who has taken care of you while you were sick,
taking care of all your stuff while you were not there.
The person who you disappreciate and reject her help.

She who has been there to make you laugh,
when things were not going so well and you were down.
The person who you put down and make cry.

She who has loved you since the first time she saw you.
writing to you and comforting you while you were locked up.
The person who you don't show respect and humiliate.

She who supported every decision you have ever taken,
following and trusting her life to you blindly.
The person who you embarrass and cheat on.

Yet you do not appreciate this treasure,
not being gracious for everything she does for you,
loving you for who you are and not who you act.

One day the table will eventually turn,
the day you most need her she won't be there;
and in her empty space you will eventually suffer.
