Promises

Throughout my life
I have kept promises
ne'er have I failed
if I can't keep them
I just don't make them

One person I must admit
I have failed with promises
with new year's resolutions
made, and I promptly forget

Yesterday I realized that
I am special, too
so today I know that
to myself, promises I make
will come true

ne'er will I break a promise
to myself again - for when
it comes to reality -
I am stuck with me 'til the end

Today is a special day
written promises to myself made
a glow of inner peace descends
as I treat myself as I do my friends

word of wisdom swan,
we have to like ourselves and be true to our selves before we can  be true to others and get that back from them.
well written and thought out piece here,
thanx for sharing it  
jm

 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

"I am special" never forgot those three words
It took me  awhile before I could even utter those words let alone believe them.
Thank you for the ray of sunshine, lovely.
