You Don't Love Me

Iím sure you donít love me the way I love you.
You donít feel the passion for me that I feel for you.
And it doesnít excite you when I hug your waist.
The love you speak of doesnít show in your action.
You donít even look like a woman whoís in love.
Iíve poured out my heart to you with tears,
But you never took me seriously or consoled me.

I canít tell why I love you because I donít know.
Moreover, I donít need a reason to love you.
Darling, I wish you could love me without a reason.
Iíve been holding on to this wishful love for a long time.
Separation is the hardest thing to go through,
But I donít want you to stay with me out of obligation.
If you donít sincerely love me, end it right here.

I know you canít control who you love or donít love.
And I canít force someone to desire me.
I wouldnít program you to love me even if I could.
No, Iíd rather you love me by your own choice.
My optimism diminishes as we slowly drift apart.
You wonít say that youíre not in love with me;
Nevertheless you fail to show me real love.

Why do you subject yourself to this torture?
I want to hear you say the sad words to me.
Tell me the truth; say you donít love me anymore.
Darling, please donít continue to be in denial.
Iíll never feel that Iíve wasted my love on you.
Although you donít love me the way I want you to,
Iíll preserve all my love for you when you leave.
