Because of Your Love

Tributes to Lovers

I wish you didn't love me.


Then it wouldn't make me 

hate myself so much

for hurting you.


I find myself

always apologizing 

for who I am.


I have to find excuses

for my behavior

because nothing about you

warrants my treatment.


But your love is

changing me,

making me better everyday.


It's just a slow process

with setbacks at times.


I know I won't become 

a new person overnight.


I'm so thankful that 

you love me.


Because without your love,

I would be unlovable.
