Army Mom’s Safe Haven

IF YOU WERE TO LOVE ME...

If you were to love me,
I would bind you to me
with chains of flowers
and the knowledge that
your promises are of your
own design.
Not mine.

I don't believe in promises any more
People change -
and all that I would ask
is all that you would give me.

It means so much more that way
I'll love you each and every day
I live, and so I am prepared
for you to go away......

This way, it's so special
when you stay

another day.
