I Will Not…

I will not judge you…

I will not bring up the past… for fear of wiping out the present.

I will not possess you… even though I want to own your every breath.

I will not plan our every moment… surprises are more fun.

I will not lie to you… even when the truth will hurt you more.

I will not try to change you… I accept you ‘as is’.

I will not take away your pain… you need it to grown on, too.

I will not have expectations of you… the ones you have of yourself are great enough.

I will not stop loving you… no matter what.
