This is my promise to you

“You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free”
-TNH

I stood here by the fence
Endless green
As far as my eyes could see

Right in the middle
there stood you
Enchanting as a gazelle
Roaming around freely on the green pasture

I smiled. I was happy. I still am

Occasionally you would approach the fence
We chatted–how I love those times we chatted
Exchanging stories, laughter, and tears
Sometimes, silence and quiet smile

But most of the time
You would be running about
Cheerfully on the vast green
Alone or with others, however you wish

And I, I shall be here by the fence
Watching you
with so much pride
And warmth in my heart

I have built this tent by this fence
Where good friends can come by for tea
And better friends can stay😉
My beloved workshop is here too
The place where I build some knick knacks
Playful things to remind us of the child in us

But I must admit, I often peek
From the corner of my eyes
To check how you are
I have curious soul. What can I do?

This is how I love you
Or rather, how I express
the Love
that He has put in my heart for you

I know not any other way
I cannot be any other way

I am but a means to Him
His way of telling you:
There is such thing as unconditional love

So this is my promise to you
That I will stay true to what He has put in my heart
That I shall love you no matter what
no matter what

There will be occasions
When I fail you
Or confuse you
Or even upset you
For I am still a work in progress
Do remind me, and forgive

Regardless
I will remain faithful to my promise
That I will stay true to what He has put in my heart
That I shall love you no matter what
no matter what

This is my promise to you
That I shall let you be
That I shall set you free
That I shall be here

This is my promise to you
That I am always near
But never nearer
I shall give you space
But I shall never leave

I know not any other way
I cannot be any other way

And you, you are free as free can be

This is my promise to you


post script: And to those who have stood and are still standing by my fence, I am forever grateful and in debt to you. Thank you so much, for showing me true caring and unconditional love. I am but a pale reflection compared to you. I love you.
