Unconditional Love

You are leaving us and your walking away,
I wish for a moment that you wished to stay,
I see little tears sliding down your cheek,
The look in your eyes is now very bleak.

People search their whole life for what we had,
Then you threw it away and made me sad,
I know you hate me and its easy to understand,
But I still wish I could be the one to hold your hand.

When did this go from so right to so wrong?
When did our love turn into a break-up song?
When did your smile turn into a frown?
How come I never looked up and always kept my head down?

I shouldn't have hurt you as much as I did,
How come I acted like an adult instead of a kid?
I'm gonna miss you more than you will ever know,
In my heart the emptiness will just grow and grow.

Deep down in my heart I'll never stop loving you,
And honestly I really don't want to,
I wanna remember those beautiful moments when,
You smiled at me with your amazing little grin.

I wish we could still be close friends,
I think that we should just make amends,
I think we should forget about the past,
This is the present and its not going to last.

I'm just standing here my heart is dying,
You can't seem to notice these tears I'm crying,
I'm the only one left, everyone else walked away,
I'm the only one that's standing here at the end of the day.

Why can't you see just how much I care?
How come you keep giving me that vicious glare?
You need to understand what I say is true,
You need to understand that I honestly want you.

Why do you have the need to leave?
Why are you leaving my heart to grieve?
Won't you just give me one last hug?
Won't you stop leaving your shoulders in a shrug?

No matter what happens however far you go,
In your heart you should always know,
What I feel for you is an unconditional love,
Compared to the rest I'll love you far and above.

I like the way youre conveying the subject, and I can easily understand your emotions. Some of the lines could probably be rephrased to flow better, just watch your syllables.

this is in response to you commenting on my eating disorder poem, by the way. I'll look at more of yours.

I just posted a poem called "Stuck and Unstuck Love" in the forum. I'm impatient, so I didn't want to have to wait! Thanks for helping this newcomer out, by the way. Very hospitable! (:
