Have You Forgotten? - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Are my arms not strong enough,
To hold you within them...
When your times get tough?

Have I not proven I could carry the weight,
Of sharing your troubles...
Without you feeling alone embracing heartache?

Have I not been there for you,
Whenever whatever it was...
You were going through?

It was you,
Not me...
Who decided you were alone.
It was you,
Not me...
Who wanted to tackle the world on your own.

Are my arms not strong enough,
To hold you within them...
When your times get tough?

Have I not proven I could carry the weight,
Of sharing your troubles...
Without you feeling alone embracing heartache?

Have you forgotten?
When you feel rotten...
So do I?
That's why I dislike to see or hear you cry.

Come here!
Put your head on my shoulder.
We can get through whatever it is you wish!
