I want to make this thing work. I want it to get off the ground and head for the stars. Never to end. Today I make the decision to completely let go. I will take the first step without seeing the stairs beneath me. So, these are my promises to you:
I Will Keep My Heart Open
When I'm angry or am offended I tend to shut down. I cut off the person from my life or I distance myself from the relationship. Whatever we were won't be the same because you stabbed me once and I won't let it happen again. All I'm doing is protecting myself. However, I realize that this strategy will not go far.
I know that your intentions are not to hurt me. Things happen and you are only human. So when your words hurt or you come up short I will not leave the relationship. I will not run free. I will stay. I'm going to allow myself to be hurt.
I Will Hold Nothing Against You
I'm gonna forgive and then forget that it ever happened. Turning the page to build anew. I will continue to forgive you over and over. Even when it enraged me. Even when you let me down. When I counted on you to move the mountains. No matter what, unconditionally.
I Will Be Open With My Feelings
Three strikes and you're out was my method of choice. I would let the resentment build-up in me towards that person until I had enough.
From the moment something vexes me you'll know. I will share with you how I feel always.
I Will Be Everything You Need Me To Be
Whatever you need me to be and so much more. Trust me when I say I got you- I got you. I'll treat you like the king you are. Serve you the tastiest meals. Have your house spotless. I'll strengthen you when you can not go on. All your needs met.
All this because you're everything. You put a song in my heart. I feel it when I'm with you. I refuse to let my mannerisms get in the way of a lifetime with you.
