Love is About Compromise


Love is about compromise

Not compassion

You ignore all of the little white lies

Because you want to believe them

You go along with their game

Just to see them smile

And in the end it’s all the same

You’re the one who walks that extra mile

Compromise, you know that they aren’t perfect

But every single day you swear,

That they’re worth it.

Every flaw, every scar, every little imperfection

Is just one more thing to love about them

You ignore the bad parts

The arguments and the fights

It’s worth every scar on your heart

To be the one that they might

Fall in love with

And every day you can feel them

Getting a little farther away

And every day you try your best

To get them to stay.
