[Poem] I Don't Deserve to Have You

I Don't Deserve to Have You
Poem #246
Written 27.1.2010

This poem is inspired from my own idea of the “fairness of life”, that I personally believe that one can’t get everything he/she wants from life and that when God gives something, He takes something else instead. But He knows the priorities of the things we should have, and things we shouldn’t.
However, I have realized that in our lives, we have too many good things that we are not thankful for. This ‘thankfulness’ spirit is the thing that most of us miss: we don’t actually thank God enough for what we have, because when we look at the things that we have that many others don't have, we find ourselves very blessed…
Mainly the story of this lady inspired me a lot…Watch it here (with English Subtitles)
Part 1
Part 2

This was how the idea of this poem popped into my head…

I certainly don’t deserve to have you,
I’ve had too many blessings in life,
Including meeting and loving you,
It’d be too perfect if I’m your wife…

But in this world, no body gets it all,
There has to be some sacrifice,
So, am I ready to take this fall?
Am I ready to pay life this price?

I am not sure I’ll be able to live,
If my life is going to exclude you,
But I know I’ll have to forgive,
This fate that from me stole you…

And after it’s over, my broken heart,
Will keep and cherish your memories,
It will love you even when we’re apart,
And I will still sing those sad melodies…
