Let Me Be Sacrificed
Author: Charmaine


It hurts me so much to see you upset,
to see you so blue, depressed and disappointed.
The one you love is now with another,
And though you don't say it,
I know just how you feel.

I didn't want to see you being with another gal,
But if you think you'll be happy,
I'll rather be the one to suffer.
For I'll do anything just to see you smile,
Even if it means sending you into the arms of another.

I know I've been partly responsible for your sadness,
As without me you would've been with her now.
Just because she didn't want to hurt our friendship,
She decided to sacrifice herself instead.

I regret the things which I've said and done,
But I never ever did anything despicable,
Just to get you back.
I warned you about her,
As I didn't want to see you hurt,
She's a lying, back-stabbing person,
Please don't trust her that easily.

I want to see you smile and have fun again,
To live life without a single care in the world.
I'll rather be the one to be sacrificed,
Just to see you happy once again.

I love all of your poems, this one in particular. It has a sweet caring message to it. I think you should show your poems to the guy your love goes out to. You might be suprised by what he says. And what he says just might have the word "love" in it. ;) good luck! and keep writing!

Pretty selfless

It is pretty selfless of you to send your loved on into the arms of another, just to see him smile again. Now that, that is what love should be like (in ways, obviously). Love should not be jealous or possessive. It's like that old saying "If you love them, set them free. If they return it is meant to be-if they don't, they were never yours to begin with."
Beautiful poem.
