Lately you’ve been distant. I know something is bothering you, I can only guess at what it is because you won’t let me in.
Maybe you’re worried how I’ll react if you talk to me about what it is. Maybe you think that because you feared his reactions.
Maybe you think that if you let me in you’ll be a burden to me, that you’ll be unloading your problems on me. Maybe you think that because that’s how he made you feel.
Maybe you think I won’t try to understand your problems. Maybe you think that because he never did.
Maybe you think I just don’t care. Maybe you think that because he really never did.
But what you should know for sure is very simply this – I am not him. Not today, not tomorrow, not on my worst day. You and I are partners and there will never be anything we cannot talk about. Nothing we can’t work out together.
There will be times I’m not going to understand what you are going through. But I will always be there to listen.
There will be times I will not agree with you. But I will never judge you.
There will be times I will offer you a shoulder to cry on. But I will never take that to mean you’re weak.
There will never be a time I will not be there for you.
I do these things not because I have too but because you are my best friend, my lover and my partner for life and my love for you is everlasting.
I am not him, not today, not tomorrow, not on my worst day.
