If I Love You


If I love you
I will understand
Your days are yours.
And if you choose to share
Them with me
It will be your free choice,
Not because you feel you should.
I own no other soul or life--
Only my own.

If I love you
I will ever so gently
Help you become your true self--
Not what I see for you
For I can't see your truth.
I can only see my own.

If I love you
I will realize
Our differences are not a threat
To our relationship
But rather an expression
Of each one's uniqueness.
And I will celebrate our right
to be different.
