Best For You



I know I'm not the best for you.
I know I've not been at my best for you.
We both have our issues.
No need for tissues.
We've grown away from our respective pasts.
Maybe I'm not as strong as you.
Or maybe I'm not as determined as you 
You've moved on farther than I
In the shorter time you had to that of mine.

I know I'm not the best for you.
I know I've not been at my best for you.
But I'm one of the best among the few you knew
In your life. 
And in your life I've been here,
Next to you the longest.
I might not have had the physical strength
To express the depths of my love.
Since we know love by what it does for the beloved.
Life has weakened my body.
But my heart is still deeply in love with you.
Who else then can be the best for you?
