Too gentle, perhaps

A quiet man and gentle.
Too gentle, perhaps,
Loving and kind!
Too kind?
Is that possible?
What does it really mean?
How much kindness is too much?
Is it when kindness
Slides into sacrifice?
But isn't sacrifice good?
"You, before me"
Alway, sometimes, never?
And what about love?
"Oh, love is always sacrifice."
"No, it isn't.
Love can be bloody selfish."
But then is that love?
And should you pay the price?
