Without any intention of hurting or making your heart ache,
“What will happen if I die before you?
Who would be there to love you like I do?”
You looked at me with such agonizing pain in your eyes,
I regretted my stupidity at that very instance,
You said, after a while,
“If you die, I won’t need anyone to look after me,
Because there would be no one here to be looked after”
I felt how I would I ever compete with the magnanimity your pure love.
