True Vows


I vow to

Apologize

Whenever I say things that hurt.
Not because I am  wrong
but because I don’t need to be right.

Listen

Whenever you speak your heart.
Not because I always agree with what you say
but because sometimes I am wrong.

Talk

Whenever we cannot understand each other.
Not to force you to see my viewpoint
but because I need to see what you are seeing.

Forgive

Whenever you make mistakes
Not because you promise not to make them.
but because I probably make my own.

Smile

Whenever you are unhappy.
Not because I do not care about your sadness
but because I want to help it go away.

Cry

Whenever you are unhappy.
Not because I do not care about my happiness
but because I want to share your grief.

Laugh

Whenever you do something silly.
Not because I am mocking you
but because I am celebrating your humanity.

Question
Whenever your actions are unclear
Not because I do not believe
but because I always want to.

Answer
Whenever my actions are unclear
Not because I need to explain
but because I always want to.

Lead
Whenever you appear lost
Not because you need to follow
but because I want help you find your way.

Follow
Whenever I feel lost
Not because I expect you to lead me
but because I want to go wherever you do.

Love
Accept you as you are
Not because I think you are flawed,
but because who you really are, is who I really love.
