To love and To care

To love is to sacrifice.
To care is to give way.
I once knew a man, 
who felt the same way.
He loved and he cared, 
and he did so much more.
But the last time I saw him 
he walked out the door.
I guess to love is to try 
and to care is to understand.
Now I know the reason why 
he never held my hand.
To him,
To love is a second 
and to care is a minute.
I'm glad I know why 
we weren't a perfect fit.
