You Expect Me to Be Different


I know that I have a very hard time expressing the way that I feel. You must know by now that I love you very much. When I think about you during the day, I smile. I enjoy you the most when we have moments where nothing else matters but us. I know that lately we have had a lot of external distractions and that those have placed a lot of strain on our relationship. Well, here goes my hesitation. I have to tell you that I love you, but that you do expect too much from me. I am not perfect. I need you to give me a break sometimes and stop insisting that I change. You want me to constantly say that I love you and you want me to say this in different ways. I find that hard to do.

All that matters is that you chose me. Now you realize that I may have not been as perfect as you thought. I should outwardly show my love by being more romantic, but that is not my style. All I know is that I do care for you, and I hope that you can feel that I care by seeing that I want to be with you. Please don't expect me to behave differently. I love quietly from my heart and soul. This is the only way I know how. Please bend a little and accept my expression of love for what it is--a simple love from a simple man.
