Love me because I try to touch life
within the framework of uncertainty.
Love in me the shadows of my indecision
as I strive to gain knowledge.
Love in me the silence of my hurts
and the noise of my confusions.
Love me for the feeling of my heart
not the fears of my mind.
Love me in my search for the truth
though I may stumble upon fallacy.
Love me as I pursue my dreams
sometimes retarded by illusions.
Love me as I grow to know myself
even during the times of stagnation.
Love me because I seek God’s harmony
not man’s discord.
Love me for my body that I wish to share
with affection, wrapping you in warmth.
Love me because we are different
as we are the same.
Love me that our time together will be spent
in growing, kindling the world with understanding.
Love me not with expectations
but with hope.
I will love you the same.
