Thank You a Poem To My Husband
This is a poem that I wrote, when I was trying once again to reconnect with my ex-husband. I wanted these things to be real so bad. What I did not realize is that the reason I was going through hell, and hated myself, was that I was in an abusive relationship. All I ever wanted was attention. The things that I am thanking him for, make me sick to my stomach, because now I know, if you are in a healthy relationship the feelings that I was apologizing for are not normal feelings.
Thank you for loving me even when I hated myself
Thank you for holding me and letting me drag you through hell
I love you for standing by my side even when I was acting like an irrational child
I love you because no matter what you always know how to make me smile
When I’m drowning in my own pool of rage
You subtly turn the page
You show me there is more to life than death
I don’t have to be scared I can truly live
I love you because you love me no matter who I am that day
Sometimes I feel as if you are not listening to a word I say
But then you surprise me and bring it up another time
Sometimes I feel as if I’m all alone your never around
But I know you would never intentionally let me down
When I look in your eyes I can tell you only see me
The expression on your face of love and trust sometimes makes it hard to breathe
Thank you for not walking away when I hurt myself
Thank you for not taking it personally when I tell you to go to hell
Thank you for loving me for who I am not just who I could be
You have never ever looked down at me
Even when I am acting like a fool you hold me close and hold my heart in your hands
Thank you for being everything I never even knew that I needed in a man
You are my best friend, my truest love, my soul mate
Thank you for teaching me that there’s more to life than hate
