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.
