I Can't Promise You...


Trish Hormann

I can't promise I'll be strong for you,
When I'm not strong for me.
I can't promisewe won't have our fights,
I can't proise I wont leave.

I can't say that I will fall in love,
and that this thing will last.
I cn't promise thatI won't get scared,
It's happened in the past.

I can't promise you my heart,
Or all my extra time.
I can't be your glass Menagerie,
And I won't be your mime.

I can't promise that you wont get hurt,
I can't promise I wont cry.
I can't promise I wont write or call,
Because that might be a lie.

I can't promise to be your rock,
And I'm not sure how to play the game.
I cant promise to be your ornament,
I can't promise to meet you half way.

So put this letter down and find the
one who is meant for you.
and i'll keep writing what's in my heart,
It's the one thing I can do.
