About the Poem
This poem is for those of you who realize the importance of telling your dearest friends how much they truly mean to you. I wrote this after a friend and I had a deep discussion about what love is, and since I felt strongly in my convictions, and feeling my spoken words to him were somewhat ineffective, I wrote him this poem.

Every "I love you" is a promise.
A promise to stand by you,
Whatever the odds,
Whatever the outcome,
Whatever the cost.
Every "I love you" is a pact.
A sworn oath to stick by each other,
To be there for each other, no matter what
Personal sacrifice is necessary, and no matter what
Consequences may befall.
Every "I love you" has nothing to do
Or sweet nothings whispered in an attentive ear.
"I love you" is more than all these things.
It means loyalty
Without the expectation of the same in return.
So, my friend, knowing this,
Know also that I love you.
