I Tried My Best - Poem by Bradley Lester

I tried my best, I tried too hard
To show her that I care
I gave my life to be with her
No other man would care

She uses me when times are tough
And calls me day and night
When things go well I stand aside
Alone without the light

She knows this fact ignores it though
A selfish human thought
I know not why she does these things
For her my life I fought

I tried my best with everything
I guess I'll always lose
Her heart belongs to someone else
Her heart is his to chose

I really tried my best each day
Too hard perhaps I know
But I can hold my head in pride
I'll turn and walk and go
