This Is True Love

Whether I stay behind or go -
Whatever you knew of me yesterday
Or know of me now –
My love is more yours than it is mine.
To know one’s mind as I have known
Yours and you have come
To know mine –
To know one’s thoughts and words and movements
As we have known each others,
To have faith and trust in one’s soul
As you and I have in each other’s,
To respect and honor and cherish one
Person as we do one another –
To be there to defend, to comfort, to guide, to hold…
To understand when understanding is
Hard, to agree when agreement is
To decide when decision may hurt…
But to try to do what’s right for both of us –
And all concerned –
This is true love.
