Can You Just Let Me Love You?

If only I can tell how much you mean to me
I swear I would tell you honestly.
If only I have the courage to confess
without feeling anything less.

You made me understand the deeper meaning of love
It's not about loving a person because they love you
it's more about loving a person despite not loving you too.
the pain of loving someone like what I am feeling for you.

Then I realize If I am hurting this way,
God might feel the same way whenever I ignore him.
God loves me so much but sometimes I don't show my love for him.
He is always there to support me but I'm only there when I need him.

I realized we feel brokenhearted, sadness and despair.
God is always there but we never tried to seek him.
We Love a person so much that we are willing to die for that person.
But God already sacrificed his only Son but why can't we love him back?

I am thankful for those people who hurt me or cause me pain
because of them I got a glimpse of what God felt each time I forget about him.
I am thankful for the disappointments and for the sadness that people inflicted on me
because at least I have an idea what God is feeling whenever I ignore him.

When my dad passed away, I was so hurt I could die
but then I realized, God gave us his only son because of our sins.
It must be painful for him to see his Son suffering but he did it because he loves us.
I realized a lot of things so I can really say Love can make you a better person.

Yes, I love you but it's okay if you can't love me too.
I understand that love isn't something you can force.
I have one thing I ask of you,
Can you just let me love you?

Hi, my name is Jheigh and I love writing poems so much and the theme of my poems are mostly about love and life. I want to share my poems for those people who could not express themselves well. I put my feelings into writing because that is all I can do. I hope those people who would read my poems could also find their inspiration to write poems as well.
