To Those We Love And Care

Poem By Matthew Holloway

To those we love and care
~
What more could we ask
Of those we love in such a way
That their loss would be mourned
We must accept their judgment
And ask only they be happy
Not make demands of them
That they bow to selfish needs
No we must abstain and embrace
Their joy and their love
And be there for them
Bitter words leave only regret
And stain a friendship indefinitely
We must adapt and we must accept
That a choice not of our own
May be for another right and just
What more could we ask
Of those love and those we care for
Than for them to be happy
Whatever our own dreams

Sometimes I like to try
Curl into a bottle and hide
From those thoughts about me
Those thoughts which haunt
