I just want to be loved

by SammiBABY

5 months since someone loved me,
It seems like 50 years,
Could be forever before there's another,
My mind is full of fears.

My family say they love me,
But it's really not a lot,
I need someone who's only mine,
And I know that they are not.

I have friends- I should be happy,
My life should be a happy zone
But I'm deprived of any love,
I am feeling so alone.

Is it so hard for someone to love me,
Am I really that adverse?
I just want to be loved, and love alike,
Must I live with this curse?

I'm told love will come to me
With patience I'll succeed,
But is sitting back and waiting,
Really going to get me what i need?

Am I being too demanding,
Is it my fault I'm by myself,
Do I have to change to find a partner?
I'm willing to be someone else.

I just want to be loved,
Shouldn't this be a simple task?
I just want appreciation,
Is this too much too ask?
