Gave (Poem)

I donated every apparel you gave me,

I didn’t want to wear any clothes you gave me,

I donated every jewelry you gave me,

I didn’t want to wear any jewelry you gave me,

I didn’t want anything you had ever given me.

 

I threw away every love letter you had written me,

Those love words were lies,

Those words that once made me smile were now hurting me,

It hurt to know they were all lies,

I didn’t want a memory of you and me.

 

Perhaps everything was found by someone who needed them,

Things that hurt me probably made someone else smile,

It might hurt you that I didn’t keep them,

Yet I think it’s better to give and make someone smile,

Perhaps it’s a smile that I got when I first got them.
