I’m Not Him

Lately you’ve been distant.

I know something bothering you, but I can only guess because you won’t let me in.

Do you worry how I’ll react if you do?

Maybe it’s because you worried how he would react.

Do you feel you’ll be a burden to me if you do?

Maybe it’s because he made you feel that way.

Do you think I won’t listen if you do?

Maybe it’s because he never listened.

Do you think I just won’t care?

Maybe it’s because he never did.

Full disclosure, there will be times that I won’t fully understand what you are going through

But I’ll always try.

There will be times I won’t agree with you.

But I’ll never judge you.

There will be times l will offer you a shoulder to cry on.

But I’ll never take that to mean you’re weak.

You and I are partners. You’re my lover and my best friend.  No, I am not him, not today, not tomorrow, not on my worst day.
