    I woke up yesterday knowing it would be the same,
    but thought maybe this would be the year it would change,
    I went to a friends and she bought me a rose,
    the other gave me chocolates in a bag,
    I knew I wouldn't get anything from you,
    but I kept hoping anyways,
    I went to the store and exchanged pleasantries,
    The cashier said you have a lucky man,
    I said yea too bad I wouldn't get anything in return,
    she said then why are you doing anything for him
    I said it was because I love you,
    I came home cleaned the house
    I spent 2 hours in the kitchen making you dinner,
    I set the plates out to look nice,
    I knew you wouldn't notice,
    You came home late which wasn't your fault,
    but you came empty handed,
    I gave you dinner and dessert,
    I asked if it was ok you said yes and then thank you,
    I gave you an excuse to go to the store,
    I got the kids to bed all the while praying
    I would get something when you returned,
    Ha funny thought that you would see past yourself,
    I went to bed upset and sad,
    I decided that you weren't going to change,
    I cried myself into a restless sleep,
    I can't believe you didn't do anything again,
    then again I knew you wouldn't
    Why are you so selfish or am I?

    Sometimes I manage to do that I know that being selfish is part of being depressed. So to see someone who has no excuse be selfish makes me really upset..
