This one's for you

This is for the love forlorn and the love homesick
For the love afflicted and the love addicted
The love ambiguous and the love confused

This is for the one who was loved and left
And for the leaver and for the ones who saw it coming
And said it or didn’t say
This is for the love losers and the love lost

This is for the love-in-a-mist and the love-lies-bleeding
And for the love-in-the-afternoon
And the love-on-a-bicycle
And the love-between-two-slices-of-bread

This is for the love blind the love deaf
The love wounded and the love dead
This is for the ones who turned off the machine
This is for the ones who called it

This is for the love heroes the love battlers the love survivors
This is for the victims the love scarred
This is for their children who will grow up
And love

This is for the love cooks and the love sweepers
The love makers and the love sleepers
The love bankers and the love spenders
For stay at home lovers and for working love

This is for the ones who updated their status
Who rewrote their bios
Who pictured themselves in someone else’s profile

This is for the love simple the love basic
This is for what I did for love and all the things I didn’t do

This is for you
