I Love You Not

I Love You Not

I love you, not
	Because you’re all everything
	But ‘cause you inspire me to be something 
 	I, without you, can never have a lot.

Love for me is not sweet
	If you don’t fill me with plain longing
	Though I know we’ll soon be meeting
	Love I can’t live without even for a minute.

You won’t need to be my soul mate
	Because you know by your true sharing
	Of ups and downs in living
	You and I are united in the same fate.

Not all your dreams though
	Are coming into this tough reality
	But I contently live those desires as destiny
	Not at all regret saying I always love you so.

    This reminds me of Shakespeare "to be of not to be." It flows very well and has a wonderful message. Great job! ~Joseph

    This is sweet, and it would be a perfect poem to put in a card for a boyfriend or girlfriend, it expresses the love one may have for someone and i would use it for my boyfriend if it were in a card. *smiles*
