In My Own Way

Just because I don’t love you the way you want me to
Doesn’t mean I don’t love you
I don’t make breakfast for you every morning
Or call you everyday
Or surprise you with flowers
I don’t always say things you want to hear
But sometimes tell you things you don’t want to know
I don’t always put a smile on your face
Or like the same movies as you do
Or laugh at your jokes
Or always pick up the phone
And it's not because I don't want to
Or can't do it
I do want to
But in my own way

but i was thinking... when u truly love someone... sometimes u gotta love the person in the way that that person receives love. ...cuz it seems selfish to only want to love the way you want to... without caring about how the other person understands & receives love. i'm not talking in absolute terms... but in understanding and compromises... kinda. eh! :D

Ya, what you say is true. We can't only love the way we want and not care about the other person's feelings. That would be totally selfish. But we need to understand that everyone loves in their own way. :-D

just because i dont love you the way you want me to, doesnt mean i dont love you with all i have.

totally agree sweetie...this post brings such relief to a bitchy mood about love.
its not always about getting what you want...but loving what you get :)

cheers! beautifully summed up :)
