All English Sonnets
LOVE ME AS I AM
Love me, if you do, for what I am,
And not for what you want that I should be,
Because the love that limits is a shame,
And love is real when it makes us free.
Yea! free to suck the honey from the flowers,
Like the butterflies and the bees ,
For endless mating and indulgent hours,
Flying fleetingly a mid plants and the trees,
To feed themselves and help in pollination,
With nary a much ado or causing pain.
True players in the wonder of creation,
From what they get sustenance , they sustain.
So let’s make a covenant, me and you:
Love me as I am and I will too.
