Don't Promise me the World

Don’t promise me the world
That’s not yours to give
Neither promise me forever
When all you have to give is today
Just give me your today
And all it encompasses
And should forever come and finds us here 
Our mere presence would speak of our genuine love

    I like that idea, Annalise. We should all have realistic expectations of our relationships.

    When people promise us "the world," they are usually either misguided or intentionally misrepresenting themselves, Annalise. I love the message here. So true! All we can offer is what we have today. Love, Carolyn
