I Don't Promise

I don't promise
To always be there for you,
To care for you in illness,
Or pain,
To carry you in weakness,
To lift you up through doubt,
To hold your hand through trials,
To go with you where life leads.

I don't promise these things.

Because promises are things people break.

I sing these things.

They are the melody of my soul 
And I sing them
To the universe and all creation.

That is the only way I know how to tell you
That I will love you always. 

Promises alone shall never be enough,
Shall never truly express
This One Truth.

So I shall sing to you
The melody of my soul
That is completed in each moment 
By your love.
