Help me pick a poem for a gift.

Poetry filter: I am looking for a relatively short (no longer than 10-12 lines) poem or excerpt of a poem (or especially lyrical piece of prose) that conveys the message: "When we are far apart, or fighting, or things are bad, remember that I love you/that we make each other happy." This is for a relationship that is serious but not committed, so please nothing that includes talk of being together forever or being the only one for someone.

I would happily pay for said recording.
