I promise…

Love I might not
the way you want to be loved,
But, I promise
I promise to listen to you
to listen to all of your words
to listen to all of thoughts
to listen to all of your sighs
and to listen to your heart

Love I might not
the way you want to be loved
But, I promise
I promise to remember
to remember all the promises I make you
to remember all your fears
and to remember all your dreams

Love I might not
the way you want to be loved
But, I promise
I promise to hold you
to hold you when you are tired
to hold you when you are sad
and to hold you when you are happy

Love I might not
the way you want to be loved
But, I promise
I promise to be with you
to be with you through all your fights
to be with you for all your victories
and to with you till my last breath

Love I might not
the way you want to be loved
But I promise
I promise to give
to give the best of me, to you

  1. this is so wonderful and realistic of what we can do in love. It is so open and honest.
    Would you be ok if I sent this to 2 people I love that are so in love but are struggling because of the very thing you say? I would of course send with your copywright.
    Great poem!!! ❤️
