Don't despise me for wanting the same thing or doing the same thing you would too. I am your soulmate, your image in the mirror yet different in every possible way and I promise you that -
I will always meet you halfway,
but won't go alone all the way through.
I will walk beside you,
But I will not just follow you.
I will soothe your hurt,
But I will not hurt myself in the process.
I will care for you,
But I will care for myself too.
I will cry for you,
But I will not cry because of you.
I will save you from yourself,
But I will not lose myself in you.
I will never leave you,
But I will not be left.
I will trust you,
But I will not be naive.
I will give myself to you,
But I will not give "me".
I will make you happy,
But I will not lose sight of my own happiness.
I will hold you when you need me,
But I will not let you hold me down.
I will give as much as you do,
But I will not let myself be taken for granted.
I will accept your imperfections,
But I will not be disrespected.
I will endure the pain,
But I will not be abused.
I will love you more,
But I will not be loved any less.
I will let you be a *man*,
But I will never forget I am a *Woman*.
