What Offers Have You Made... - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is not that I am selfish.
How can you say that?
When all you've done is take!

When was the last time you surprise me,
By giving?
What offers have you made,
To show anything I do for you...
Is something you appreciate?

What time have you sacrificed,
Without complaining you feel drained?
What time have we ever spent together,
When you've made a request...
I did my best to obtain.

And delighted in your excitement about it!

It is not that I am selfish.
How can you say that?
When all you've done is take!

And all I've asked is some time alone with you.
And quickly without hesitation you make excuses!
As if the time you take,
Is too much time for you to give for my sake.
