They cannot give what isn't theirs to give.
Nor offer words of truth that were never theirs to speak.
They can never honor your heart
when they've barely felt their own.
Or see your soul ~ when they've forgotten what that is.
They will never love ~ the way another is destined to love you.
They may pretend forever ~ but pretense always crumbles.
And promises are either kept or broken by the truth.
