Poem/Prayer I wrote in one of my journals on August 15, 2005


♥ Love

I have never been in love....I don't think. How would I recognize it?
I can imagine what it would feel like.

Love would be sweet and sexy. It would be humorous and playful.
Love would be there for me when it wants to run the other direction.
Love would give me flowers on any day of the week just because.
Love would make me laugh when I'm feeling down.
Love would be tall and handsome..

Love would not call me anything derogatory or hurtful.
Love would touch me softly and gently and turn me on with
just one glance.

Most of all love would love me.

Love would love me inspite of all my flaws, and accept my excess
emotional states of being.
Love would teach me love.
Love would lift me up and hold me down with a kiss.
Love would chase me on a beach and lay with me within its waves.
Love would love me from one continent to another or love me in one room.
Love would love me no matter who I choose to be at any given moment.

Love would not lie to me.

Most of all love would love me.

Love would not be afraid or reluctant to open up to me.
Love would not discard me because of my weaknesses.
Love would ask how my day went, and genuinely care about the answer.
Love would want to be a part of my interests.
Love would not be afraid of what I have to say.
Love would not discredit what I have to say as irrelevant and mindless

Love would make me shed tears in the intenseness of intimate passion.
Love would make me feel alive.
Love would love me whether I chose to stay or go and would choose my happiness.

Love would want me to and let me be who I am.
Love would not be afraid of what I have to offer.

Love would embrace me when I seem un-embraceable.
Love would be easy to talk to, would never end and love would be true.

Love would show me the way back to God when I've lost my way.
Love would have my back, let me know, and make me feel I can let my guard down
and trust.

Love would help me see the good in all things in life.
Love would be infant, child, teen, adult and elderly all at once.
Love would be my friend...

But most of all love would love me...

Amen.
