Fern

I remember
you asking me
time
after time
why I loved you.
Why I spoiled you
as if you were
the only girl on the planet.
Why
after every arguement
or disagreement
I would stay
instead of becoming
yet another man
who left you.
What I did not realize
was that you were not asking
because you wanted to hear
my answers.
You were asking
so you could finally find things
to love about yourself.
Though we have parted,
I hope you found the courage
to love yourself,
in spite
of your painful past.
I really do
hope.
