This is a card from the 1970's once sent to me by my best friend Eric. It is an enigmatic sort of saying, but today it makes sense and fits with my mood.
I will try to be consistent with you
So that you will understand
The core of my personality
And from that understanding
You can gain strength and security
That I am acting as me.
I may falter with my moods . . .
But because people are never constant
And are as changeable as the seasons,
I will try to build up within you
A faith in my fundamental attitude
And show you that my inconsistency
Is only for the moment
And not a lasting part of me.
I will show you love now.
