If – A Poem

If I had eased my own fears the way that I eased yours,

I would not have been afraid to be alone.

If I had built myself up the way that I did you,

I would have built a happier home.

If I had listened to my heart the way I listened to yours,

I would have heard its painful call.

If I had loved myself as much as I loved you,

I would have never loved you at all.
