You Are Deserving Of The Best - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Turn around and look at me.
Nothing on my face expresses,
I've come to you with a concealing message.

I did not appear here expecting forgiveness.
I came to you wanting to,
Show my respect.
I take full responsibility,
For the neglect I had shown...
When then I left.

Please,
Turn around and look at me.
Nothing on my face expresses,
I've come to you with a concealing message.

I want to reveal to you,
My immaturity has gone.
I came back to town to let you know...
No matter what has happened,
Between us...
I want you to hear me say,
It was me...
Not you,
Who had been the one wrong!
I've been wanting to tell you that,
For so very long.

Turn around and look at me.
Please?
Nothing on my face expresses,
I've come to you with a concealing message.
If I have to deliver it on my knees,
I will.
Only happiness in your life,
I wish for you to seek and fulfill.

I've come to you to express my respect.
And to let you know,
You are deserving of the best...
Of what life has to offer.
