Raison d'Être

When you are mine
I will kiss you and hug you and cherish every hair on your head
I will smile when you smile, and cry when you cry

When you are mine
I will teach you all of the lessons I've learned with patience and care
I will guide you and help you whenever I can

When you are mine
You will be safe
You will be loved
You will be precious
You will be everything to me

You are my greatest responsibility
You are the best part of me
You are everything I hoped you would be

But you are not mine
To keep forever
To keep close to me always
To keep all to myself

You are not mine.
I am yours.
