She can

I watch you with her
and I try to recall
the love that you once showed me
lost, it seems
useless, I know
racking my brain
for feelings grown cold
trying to hang on
to what we once had
dreaming, regretting
all those years
and the result that
was so unseen,
to myself.
I never thought
you’d tire of me,
get sick of my faults,
let resentment override
your love.
Through wiser eyes
I now can see
we both loved,
made mistakes,
gave up too soon.
There is no peace
in me to see
a smile on your face
no wishing you the best
of life, love and happiness.
Instead, I feel
that I couldn’t please you
and she can.
